Practicing drawing with Adobe Ideas on the iPad. Flowers are my favorite subject and I am familiar with their shapes and proportions. These Black-eyed Susan’s are from my garden and are sitting on my work table. I use several techniques when learning a new medium to assist with my success. First, keeping it simple by drawing an image that is familiar. Second, using a single hue and adding a variety of values. This assists me from getting overwhelmed with too many color choices. And finally, instead of erasing and redoing over and over, I let go of perfection and allow the image be done at 80%. When I finish one drawing, I can move on and start another one. Stay tuned for more to come!
