Since I've been back from my vacation, I haven't had much time to play with my finger painting watercolor ap on my old iPad (still can't get it to work on iPad Air).
But one day, when there was no one home but me, I took a sloth day. A complete and total day of doing nothing. Jammies all day long, heck, I barely left my bedroom. I doodled on the ap, watched tv (3 episodes of Downton, plus a few hours more of other things I was behind on), and took naps.
I even dug around in my purse to find a battered protein bar so I didn't have to walk to the kitchen for food.
Everyone needs one of those days sometimes, don't they? A day that just kind of drifts away as you relax.
Later, when Sugarwings saw the fairy costume on the dress form picture, she asked me to do a drawing of a fairy in it so she could color it in. I've printed it for her so she can take it to the studio to paint on. Please don't look too closely at the fingers... it's a quickie pic for a kiddo.
During my nothing day, I was lazily looking through facebook and saw a photo of a beautiful little Bichon who lives with my friend, Holly, and decided to draw her from the picture.
Soon, my doodles turned to poodles. This is Guncle Randy's pup.
And his Bichon, Bella. Funny how different two dogs of the same breed can look. Not only the hairdo that the groomer gave them but eye and nose color too. Of course, I think my 3 dorkies look nothing alike, but when visitors come over, they can't always tell them apart.
While I was still in a canine mood, I drew Karen's elegant Satine from another FB page.
Sometimes, it can be frustrating to try to get detail on this ap. I've learned that bigger, more simple things are easier to do. Tiny details are impossible. (as proved by the fairy finger scribbles)
And also, I should just consider it cartooning, not a real painting. I keep it quick, light hearted and fun.
Hmmm, I wonder when I get another sloth day? Those are few and far between, but well worth waiting for. Although I paid for my day of doing nothing. Somehow, the old barn cat got into the office and made a horrid mess while I was busy doing nothing and not leaving my bedroom. Ugh. Double ugh.
