ArtRage Sketches and More
I sketched out on the porch this morning. I tried a new app on my iPad. It is called ArtRage. I’ve had it for a while, but this is my first Scavenger Hunt sketch on it. It has different tools, like airbrush and watercolor brush. Easy to use, just a bit different than Brushes. My style doesn’t change much of course, no matter the tool.
For Scavenger Hunt 323
Number 1, an ancient artifact (at least 100 years old) - some old irons that belonged to my grandmother and Gene’s grandmother.
Number 2, roof - Gene’s storage shed
I played with ArtRage sometime back with the part where you can use metallic paint. I did this desert scene that I did from imagination. Interesting.
I have not taken a photo of the finish of my pastel painting. I will do that and get up the WIP post soon. I like to take the photo in direct sunlight and we had clouds yesterday and again this morning.
You may have heard about fires in the area. We are not very close. There were several fires yesterday that the emergency crews had to respond to. Very hot and dry still. Be careful everyone.
You can keep up on the Austin American Statesman/ Bastrop Advertiser
For you pastelists, here is an article by Richard McKinley that gives some tips for flying with your pastels. I recommend reading his blog for info on pastels, techniques, theory and more. Most of the advice applies to painting in general, especially pastels and oils.

- I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los Niños. (Link on sidebar) "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors.
