Cloud Snapshot

“Look Up” Cedar Park, 2021

I really enjoyed the cloud-cover on today’s neighborhood run.

I’m also enjoying using the Simple RAW Camera app for my iPhone 12 Mini. I find that the iPhone’s regular photos are too processed for my taste, especially when I bring them into Lightroom for editing, but shooting RAW on the iPhone bypasses the iPhone “magic” and allows me to post-process the photos with greater control. For normal photos, I’ll still use the iPhone’s camera, but for cloud photos, RAW is the way to go.

FYI, the iPhone 12 Mini doesn’t have the option natively to enable RAW photos to be saved, so you have to use an app.

I hope you had a nice day!

Getting Ready for Inktober 2020

“Murillo Reference” Cedar Park, 2020

I’m getting psyched for the upcoming Inktober! Just like last year, I’ll be doing daily drawings on my iPad but not following the official Inktober prompts. And of course, these won’t be ink drawings.

I’ve been really lax about my digital drawing, so this will be good for me. I know I learned a lot last year and am looking forward to what this year will bring as far as new techniques and preferences.

Today’s photo is of a drawing I started. I am basically getting a line drawing ready to use as a basis for different kinds of styles.

The original painting is The Virgin of the Annunciation by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo which I viewed at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Unfortunately, one of Murillo’s other paintings was in the news recently because of a botched restoration attempt. 😔

Oh well, nothing is permanent…
