It’s Not Finished Yet

Here’s a weird thing. When I am drawing on my iPad (which I have been doing a lot lately), I always start by blocking in the major shapes with a first guess at the colors. I do this as a kind of placeholder with the intention to go back and fix it later.

But then I never do!

I either get bored with the picture before it is done, or I decide I like the lo-fi version better than the original. Usually, if the picture is not done in one session, I call it done anyway. I have inadvertently invented my own style that I call “too lazy to finish”.

I am working on a copy of Vermeer’s The Cook at the moment.

The Cook by Vermeer

I am gonna force myself to finish it, but keep the intermediate version to compare.

Art Studio. It’s very nice. Almost as simple as pencil and paper (but it has ‘undo’).

I also just bought TouchDraw for vector drawing, but I have not used it yet for anything substantial.
