ESCARAMUZA CHARRA / Daily Painting #1267

Escaramuzza Charra / Painted on my iPad Air / ArtRage3

Today I decided it was time t try the watercolor brush in ArtRage. I also thought it would be fun to see what I could in terms of emulating my “confections” painting style. So, on the train from Jerez de la Frontera to Sevilla, I started today's painting. There was a bit of a problem with the fine print in the car rental I was planning on, so I hoofed on into town and landed myself a small, bu very nice, clean room for less than I've been paying in Jerez. Did i little grocery shopping, then took a walk down to the neighborhood I stayed in twelve years ago, and had dinner in my favorite Sevilla Chinese restaurant, where I continued working on the painting. Then I walked back to the hotel where I put on the finishing touches, and am now writing this post.

I just checked Google Maps, and it looks like I've walked a little over five miles today, dragging my baggage, among other things. No wonder I'm tired. I think I'll hit the hay and let you search this blog for descriptions of both Escaramuza and Confections if you're interested.

By the way my little “watercolor” didn't turn out too bad, in my humble opinion. Not too bad for a first try, anyway. What do you think?

¡Hasta mañana!

 

FAUXTOGRAPHER / Daily Painting #1263

Fauxtographer / Painted on my iPad Air / ArtRage3

Ah, the fauxtographer, you see them everywhere. Gearheads all. Thousands of dollars worth of cameras and lenses hanging from neck and shoulders, searching, searching. Yet seldom does the camera come into play. Are they waiting for the perfect image to appear before them? Are they too tired to see? Afraid that even with all that equipment they still might fall short of the perfect photograph?

Shoot I say! Shoot because by shooting you will learn to shoot better. Fail, because by failing and learning from your failures you will grow.

More processions again this evening.

I finally managed to transfer a couple of images from my camera to my iPad via wifi. The process is not for the faint of heart. At least now I know for sure that it can be done with the Lumix app that I already have. Just in time, too, as my sd cards are almost all full. Now to sort, delete, and transfer to make way for more.

I guess I'd better get some rest.

¡Hasta mañana!
