It's not the flamingos that are wobbly, it's me! I have a horrid spring cold. Hoping to feel better I took a few puffs from an inhaler the doctor gave me a few months back. Whoa!!!!!!!!!! I was sitting at the easel working on this painting and felt the wobblies kick in. I looked at my hand and saw it trembling, my heart began to race, but I continued on. LOL. I think maybe the shakiness helped the painting somewhat. This is from a photo I took from the day at the Wild Animal Park north of San Diego. I'm liking how it's coming out.
Yesterday was a good art day. Dianne and I went to the studio class and then poked our noses in a printing workshop where we got a mini lesson on the process. Looked like lots of fun. We might look into the next one in the fall.
I also played around this afternoon with Virtual Pose 2. Another artist, Casey recommended it and since I lack volunteers to pose au natural; this is a pretty cool program. You can pick a model, pose and rotate to your liking, then sketch away. My only disappointment is that the image on the screen is rather small. I think you can print out the images but I haven't figured that out yet.
