Watercolor? Nah... Let's go back to making lines.

I took that watercolor class during the winter, and now all I can think about is sketching in black and white. Go figure.

Singapore on my mind!

Early-bird registration for the 6th International Urban Sketchers Symposium, which will be in Singapore, just opened this week. I'm really excited about the trip —it will be my first to Asia!— and especially about meeting old and new urban sketchers friends!

Flashback to Paraty

That "Five Day Art Challenge" going around on Facebook gave me the push I needed to scan and share the last of my Paraty Symposium sketches. I can't quite remember what musings I wrote next to the drawings. Hopefully nothing too embarrasing!

Intuos Creative Stylus 2 and Bamboo Paper app

Got myself a Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2 and this is my first test on my iPad Mini. To get full advantage of the tool's possibilities you have to synch it with Wacom apps like Bamboo Paper. That activates "pressure points" on the tip of the pen that give you more control of your lines and shading. I hope getting this Stylus finally motivates me to do some more digital sketching.
