|Shorebird (Ibis) / Boogie Board Drawing with color pencil.|
Back in May, while painting with the local plein air group, I photographed a white ibis strutting along the shore, with waterlilies and reeds in the background. I rarely do animals, but there was something arresting about being so close to wildlife that day.
Over the past two weeks, I've been working from that photo of the ibis, starting with the drawing done on the Boogie Board. When it was finished, I photographed it and uploaded the image to my computer. With Photoshop I added the white and orange colors, and printed it out on rice paper. To give the image a bit more dimension and color variation, I added some hand coloring with color pencils. I guess you could call this piece of work a "digital mixed media drawing."

Since my last post, I also acquired a Boogie Board RIP, another Kent Displays / iMPROV Electronics product that I mentioned back on July 10. It's a bit larger, has the save feature, and connects to the computer for direct upload. I've done a bit of scribbling on it, just to get acquainted with how it operates. I'll be posting more information about that e-Writer tablet in upcoming post.
Thank you for taking a moment to read this post. Have a great Monday!
