Tomorrow's Scribble Picnic art get together over at Michael's
is canceled! Too much going on in many people's lives these busy
Summer days - even I missed the last two weeks due to
travel and busy days when I returned. Perhaps the 'picnic' will
return at a later date, I hope so.
I'd already worked on my piece for this week - theme
Iced Drink - so decided to share it anyway.
For me, on late afternoons into hot, humid evenings here in the southeast,
you may find me enjoying my favorite 'iced drink', Rosé wine.
I've taste tested many, some excellent and far too pricey, others not so
good, from all growing areas in the world.
This pretty shaped bottle of dry rosé (must be dry, no sweet wines for me)
from Provençe, has become my go to choice for this Summer. . . . and at
just $7.99 at Aldi it's a winner!
My original photo, taken on the dining room table, is edited in PicMonkey
to a 'sketch' then I added back color with watercolor pencils.
I'm pleased with this effect - I love watercolor paintings.
I know there are some 'Watercolor' apps available that turn your
photos into paintings - anyone use one of those and can recommend?
I use a MacBook Air so it has to be compatible. Unfortunately Waterlogue,
purported to be the best app, is not available for MacBooks or iMac.
It is available on the iPhone though so perhaps I'll try it there - can at
least use it on photos taken with my phone rather than camera.
Cheers, and a happy Summer painting days to all my artist friends.
