Something ages old from Procreate. I was testing some integration from Paper, as I do like the fat pen tool, but Procreate has some nice chalks and charcoals.
Returning to it, it looked more interesting than I remembered. A few more charcoal smudges and it’s not too bad.

One is 23. One is 19.
Something I rarely do is paint from a photo, but this scene was likely going to change quickly. So, yes, I traced over the photo for the figure and forms, otherwise completely digitally hand painted free form. No filters, no sampling.

Just futzing around with importing something into Paper. That patch of orange colour has been run through numerous filters. Anyway, this is also an experiment to see if this image, sized elsewhere will appear ridiculously larger than necessary here.

A quiet, dim corner, pale late evening light.
Hmmm…. is there no way to limit the size of images so they fit? Where is it?
UPDATE : The WordPress app provides a touch tap system to set a few fixed sizes. They don’t seem to successfully apply when updated. On the desktop through the browser, you need to use coarse large movement tools, like a trackpad or mouse to drag the corner of the image to overly precise scaling numbers. Neither tool works adequately.

This app has some subtle brushes, and even as the colour choices are limited to red and black, inasmuch as I might like some other colours, the occasional and forced restraint yields wonderful drama.

Maybe a little cheating using Procreate’s perspective grid. Well, for the couch anyway.

In process, maybe done, maybe not. I feel a push-pull about doing something in the background.
Typically – even as I neglected the practice for a time – it starts with a scribble, a mark, a motion, without intention to become anything, then it becomes something. The pencil marks remained for a long time, then, i shaped the cat shape and drew the fine lines.
Ha ha. Add the sunglasses because it was a bright day. Later add the touch of green. Later, add the orange colour, drop it out. run it through some filters, put it back.
I won’t make it square or squarish. Something background? Too cool for a background?

Maybe needs a bit more fussing. I’m thinking I might try to take out the black cat outline.
