the airport



one crashed hard drive, a corrupt file and one false start later, i finally was able to get to another in my series of Graphic LA paintings. this one was 90% rectangle and line tool. i make a square, adjust the color value and use transform to alter it's shape. working big to small, broad to detail, just like the traditional painting process. i can't wait to do more!

This is so inspiring!
I try to slowly follow the road of simplification within my own artwork.
Thanks for sharing Robh!

Do you think it's possible to use the RGB sliders to pick the precise colour instead? Say, you wanted to use a hard opaque brush and just put the right colour there. Have you tried that before?

anton, yes. i learned to paint traditional that way. these are more "designy" so it's a bit more exploration than faithfully recording what's there.

These are crazy.

At the risk of seeming obtuse, I have to ask:

1) All iPad?
2) Sketchbook Pro, or...?
3) From photo, or on-site?
