Doodle started after testing my wife's Samsung tablet using the pressure-sensitive stylus of my Tegra Note tablet. Turns out that her Samsung does NOT respond to the Tegra stylus as a pressure-sensitive stylus. Guess that explains why Samsung makes the excellent (but not nearly as affordably priced!) SPen instead. Was nice to be back drawing on my Tegra. And Artflow: Paint Draw Sketchbook is just plain fun. :)
Having seen the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, seeing this now was interesting.
Kind of a compositional, structural study or plan for the painting?
A sketch done using the excellent Artflow Studio for Android. Based on glimpsing Mt. Rainier from our plane flying home from Seattle.

The Guggenheim Museum, in partnership with Archive.org, is making their collection of art books available free for reading online or download in various ebook formats (PDF, EPUB, Kindle, etc).
Many of them are catalogs of exhibitions, with reproductions of the paintings and what the catalog author had to say about each.
There are currently 205 books available.
So if you’re a starving art student, or someone just wants to learn more about fine art, go check it out.
MONUMENTAL SCULPTURE on site:
3D print an entire building
My limited sculpting has always been small things, because sculpting something large would take, well, a large amount of work. But combine the above with a good, interactive 3D design program? Right up my alley.
I want one. Ya’ll feel free to buy it for me, OK? Thanks. 😉
Another year further from the high school freshman who had discovered writing the summer before and bravely started sending out his poetry and stories. Didn’t sell any stories, but won a couple of cash-paying poetry contests, so he managed a $400 profit that first year.
