Menorah and Candles (Video Animation)


For the past few days, I have been making a menorah every day. This one was made on my with Brushes app, but on the iPad which has the option of capturing a stroke-by-stroke animation as you draw. So you can press play and light the candles.

Menorah (Watercolor Sketch)

This morning I painted this watercolor sketch of a menorah. This is painted on a watercolor paper postcard (original size about 3 x 5 inches), and cropped to get a square format. I used my travel watercolor kit and a small brush.

Little Tiny Menorah (Digital Sketch)

It has been a very busy day, but this afternoon I made a little time for art. I used the Brushes app on my iPhone to make this little digital sketch of a menorah. Then I transferred it into the computer, cropped it in iPhoto, and used Painter to do some basic cleanup. Tonight is just the first night of Chanukah, but I drew this menorah with all eight candles blazing.

Digital Daisies

Here's another little composition that I created today, using the Brushes app on my iPhone. It's fun to experiment with the different "brush strokes". I discovered that this one creates petals if you use a circular motion.

Yellow Blossoms (Digital Art)

Yesterday while I was at Porter Mill, I wanted to show a friend the Brushes app on my iPhone, so I started a new drawing to demonstrate how it works. The little drawing I started was no more than a green squiggle, but today I decided to finish it. This drawing began as a geometric design, but it started to turn into yellow flowers, so I let it happen.
