This post is part of an ongoing series about my daily sketches with a great little iPhone app called Brushes. You can watch my progress over on my Flickr Photo Set.
Well, my spotless painting streak ended at 2 and a half weeks. With a busy long weekend of 12 o'clock bedtimes, followed by a cold, I managed to miss several paintings. Still, I've done as much as I could and am hopefully getting back on track now. A few friends have asked how exactly this works, and what better way to show than a video!
The video doesn't show all the zooming in/out and color choices, so it's obviously sped up a bit, but you can see the strokes. I've started to recall a little bit of technique- things like working background to foreground and coming back in to edges, and so on. I'm still trying to push myself to loosen up a bit and go faster, but sometimes it's just too much fun to get lost in the little details of a peach or cherry.
