The past two weeks have been spent shifting my thinking
from a PC laptop to a huge new computer monitor, an iMac.
I am struggling with many issues but think I have been able to add to my blog.
Several weeks ago I found a lot of these wonderful peppers
at the Farmers Market and bought many more of them for a dining table centerpiece.
Taking some of them into the studio I drew this sketch on white paper.
This pen and ink was in a previous blog.
I no longer have PhotoShop Elements so could not lighten the right side of this photo.
Before the peppers dried I worked on this colored pencil painting
using the above reference photo and the actual peppers to capture the bright colors.
Again, without PSE I could not lighten the white background
of this photo taken by my iPad.
Perhaps there is someplace on this Mac to accomplish
what I need but otherwise I may be reinvesting in PhotoShop.
Saturday I enjoyed a tour through the house and studio by the
Renwick Alliance. So most of last week was not spent
learning the iMac but getting ready for the tour.
Now I will again work at learning by shifting my thinking
and back to the studio for some much needed creative work.
