Woman on Plane (iPad drawing)

Drawn from life, in August.

On the way from Minneapolis to Austin.

Suburbia Update:

Juvenile males, going stag in the neighborhood.

  1. Thanks, Silvia.

    Part of my distraction from fear of flying series.

  2. So fine. And what a great way to be distracted.

  3. It's a wonderful distraction not only from flying, but everything else. You really do have such control. Amazing.

  4. Here's a take that might be a little different: when football and baseball uniforms are this kind of blue and white, I find 'em so boring that it makes me angry. But you make the same colors pop, as well as flattering your subject.

    Hint to other wannabe art critics: when you don't know what you're talking about, compare something to sports.

  5. Yes, what a great way to do your art while traveling.

  6. I'm surprised by how much I like this. I never would have guessed the medium could be so malleable - at least to my untrained eye.

  7. OK. Here's the truth - I usually don't like I-pad drawings, but the art..ART in this and the last I-pad post (ArtRage) are amazing!! Beautifully done.! And magnificent pastel and charcoal sketches! Wow!! I could go on..

    For me, it works ; so does reading.

  9. Thanks, Linda.

    Drawing in a plane, with unpredictable turbulence, is the opposite of controlled.

  10. Thanks, Banjo.

    I have never become angry at color combos, though sometimes I am astonished in a not-good way.

  11. Margaret, the iPad has such potential to lighten up what I schlep.

  12. Thanks, Paula.

    I also I am surprised and delighted.

  13. Thanks, Dan.

    I appreciate the feedback. I haven't been following the growing body of iPad work. I probably should check more of it out. The same way it is good to be familiar with other artworks from the present and past.

  14. When I saw this my first response was Warhol. Either as something he would of made or a likeness

  15. PA, I hadn't seen Warhol--the likeness--before, but now I do.

    The woman was actually much older than I drew her, maybe in her 70s, and very pretty. Pink and white.

  16. I like this...definitely doesn't look like a 70 year old though!!!

  17. Thanks, Chieftess.

    I do much better than a plastic surgeon.

  18. I thought of Warhol too. There's a resemblance. Very cool. I love the blue.

    Banjo, your comment cracked me up! I'm not sure your hint would work for me as I know as much about sports as I do of art, which is to say, not much.

  19. Thanks, Susan. I am seeing Warhol too now.

    Susan, I think Banjo's got a good idea, though sports wouldn't be my go-to comparison, either.

    About color choices--I don't think about exciting v. boring, or at least i haven't in the past. I am usually working so fast that I am barely thinking at all, just reaching for something that seems to work.
