Rooms I'll Never Be In: Pierre Bonnard's Dining Room in the Country, Vernon (1913): 2011.11.06

iPad

Calligraphy Art and Art Studio Apps

Freehand from a photo of Bonnard's painting.

A few hours.

 

Still intent on studio housecleaning, a mostly black and white book on Elsworth Kelly went straight into the donations bag without hesitation.

 

Next in hand, a book on Bonnard, published in the 1960s, and inherited from my mother. It too has lots of black and white but a sufficient color plates section to warrant keeping unless/until I acquire a better Bonnard book. I do love his paintings.

 

I started this piece in the morning using the Calligraphy Art app and was really enjoying it. Until it crashed on me and I lost some work. Although I had saved a little while before the crash, there's no way to import an image back into Calligraphy Art so I had to finish it in the evening a different way.

 

I looked in Brushes, Sketchbook Pro & Art Studio, and Art Studio most easily enabled me to make a sort of chisel pen to emulate the marks made in Calligraphy Art, so that's where I finished it.

 

As I also wanted to stick to the limited palette of Calligraphy Art, I made a page of color swatches, and imported that into Art Studio. I selected only colors from the swatches, and used only the chisel pen. I can tell which part is which but I hope it's not obvious to anyone else.

 

Counting drawings for November with the naNoDrawMo Group: #17.
