Title: Wastin' time digitally - travel impressions
Post by: Gita on December 13, 2017, 01:44:03 PM
Sitting in a narrow plane seat, flying over the clouds, wastin' time....
This is a completely digitally drawn painting on my iPad on a long distance flight.
All comments are welcome.

Gita,

What a fabulous way to spend your flight time. 

I have no idea how you did it, but it is marvelously done.  Magical and playful with vivid color.

I am happy to hear your comments Mea, Val.
Dennis, I am joking of course. If I had the choice, I would start a project with real paints and brushes. But you are absolutely right, not only this digital software needs to be mastered but also this endless time in the flight. Actually, I am geographically closer to you now, I reached Bali safely. I love this artistic place so much.  :D. Hope Agung does not grumble too much.

Thanks for your concern, Mea. I shall try my best.
Yes I shall post fotos, Val. Ubud is the town with artists where one should go and I am passing through.  Met a local artist yesterday who teaches a special traditional painting technique for children. You have to have very good eyes for this sort of painting, I believe.  They use refillable  micron pens from Japan for this. I bought this Goddess painting done by a 12 year old.


Attaching one of my first travel water colours.  This is a Dwarapala ( A Dvarapala or "door guard", a gate guardian often portrayed as a warrior or fearsome giant. The dvarapala statue is a widespread architectural element throughout Hindu and Buddhist cultures, as well as in areas influenced by them like Bali. )

Well, that door guard sure would scare me away!  Nice job, Gita.

Amazing work on the Goddess by a 12-year old.

Enjoy your travels!

I don't know Mea, that door guard seems to have a smile!  ;)

Brilliant work on the goddess painting, especially so for 12 years of age.

Have a lovely time and make lots of w/c sketches!

Haha, Mea, Val. This door guard would have been suitable for the Oktober challenge. Another winner, I suppose. These figures are everywhere. Of course not all are scary. I chose to paint this since this was so impressive. :D
Here's a photo

Thank you Win.  :D. I hope to have the time to paint more. Can upload photos when I have good wifi connectivity.

The bright red of the Lobster claw flowers seduced me to paint them. 

Love to hear your comment.

There are a number of names these are known by in the Caribbean, the most common I've heard is 'Devil's Claw'. You've done a very nice rendition of it.
I did a few paintings of these, I guess a number of years back. I believe they were one of my first plein air attempts. I guess they were ok, as they were asked for and I gave them away to curious bystanders  ;D

Interesting and love your drawing while sitting in the plane, Gita. 
That little girl's art is amazing.
Thanks for posting the other pictures, too.

How fun you can create art digitally!! And the goddess painting by the 12 year old is incredible - such a talent. Love your door guard - hope you turn that into something more than a sketch, it's really really good! I'm so anxious to visit Bali - hoping if my husband sells his business this year we can add that to our list of places to visit as retired people!!!

Thanks Cath!
Sharon, you can go on a short vacation ( 3 weeks) to Bali! Even if life circumstances put limitations, It's better to try the best to go there. It's a "must go" for an artist.
