Sunny Morning Table with Fruit and Flowers

Lemons, Hydrangeas and a Bottle Cap, more random table stuff. Procreate on the iPad.

A sunny morning, two bowls of lemons and a vase of hydrangeas. What could be better than sunshine and happy summer colors. The series of digital still life paintings I’ve been posting were done last summer while my kitchen was being remodeled and I was using my studio as my living space so it was easier to paint digitally than on canvas.

It also meant that during the remodeling months from June to October my life was so crazy I didn’t really have time or mental bandwidth to post to my blog, hence finally playing catch-up now.

Paolo, Fasyali and His Bow Tie

I was attracted to draw Fasyali (above), by the photo he posted on the Sktchy App because he just looked like such a nice person and I loved his bow tie and ears. I drew it first in one of the pencils on Procreate and then added a layer of color beneath the pencil so it colorize the sketch.

Below is another sketch from a fun photo of Paolo in the Sktchy app.

I love the way digital selfies make noses and ears so prominent. They’re so fun to draw.

Above is my lovely plastic skull replica I named Morton Skullman with a bouquet of hydrangeas from my garden in my grannie’s milk glass vase. I’m continuing to experiment with simplifying light and dark and abstraction.

LOL! I just realized that Morton’s nickname, “Mort” means “DEAD” in French!

Below is Mort with a cantaloupe that’s bigger than his head and below that is Mortie wearing Grandpa Simon’s old fez from his days as a Mason.
