Updated video. Fixed some colouring with yet another shape and colour mask (5 altogether!). The video was over-exposed and I am quite surprised at how I was able to tone the white-out down to palatable levels, make the chiffon pants blue instead of black (love them!) and more-or-less get the colour of that wrap shirt (the colour of a ripe papaya), all without making my hair peroxide red (which it's not) in FCPX. Still learning video editing, in other words!

The image is from the end of the video. Running the credits, I chose a small clip and slowed it down and added a prism filter - earlier in the reading I had talked about how many children see auras around people and animals and trees and lose the ability as they grow up (I know I did and can only see auras with a lot of visual effort now).

Is it only the artist who sees the difficult spots, or is it everybody?

Two Recent Sketches
Two recent drawings. This one was done at a life drawing session. Graphite, watercolour paper. A pose of maybe an hour and a half or a so. Getting proportions takes the longest and I think one arm is not quite. Otherwise, ok. I had thought to darken the hig...

Progressing, bit by bit...
This is drawn in, I think, with a 2B in a .9mm technical pencil. It's on it's way to becoming, I hope, a watercolour. Quite large - 14" x 20" or 36cm x 51cm, Aquarelle Arches, 100% cotton, 300g/m or 140lb. My DSLR was out of juice, so I snapped with my iPho...

Couple of Ink Sketches
A poet, drawn today. I dare not name him in case he doesn't like the beginnings of this ink sketch. A beautiful black woman on the subway - I didn't feel like trying to darken the skin tone with ink lines, too finicky and easy to overdo (and, anyway, I'd ha...
