A few years ago my husband, Kevin bought me an iphone. Even the first ones had a great built in camera and he set me up with email capability. One day I was so happy with the way the painting was starting out I took a picture of it in the early stages and sent it to myself. Seeing the picture on my computer screen was a revelation. Somehow it was like holding it in the mirror. Every flaw that I was willing to see was right there. For starters the water here isn't flat. I was also extremely happy at the things that worked. I could see the reflection in the water was going to work.
This is the first picture I took of a painting with my iphone. I had already put the tiger drawing on canvas and was figuring out the background. I rarely pencil on anything other than the animal itself.
Here is my pallet that day. I had no idea I would have so much fun. I was free of color. All I had to do is paint in tones, light, medium and dark.
In the next few days I will post more pictures of this painting in progress. At the end of this series I will give away a small print from my Etsy shop of "Torrit the Tiger" to the first person that correctly guesses or figures out what painting won the Gamblin art contest this painting was entered.
PURCHASE 8x10 painting prints, holiday & birthday cards!
