This year I’m participating in the Art for Healthcare in Scotland project.
Artist from all over the world will be sending handmade original pieces of art in the form of a postcard to Edinburgh. All cards will appear in an exhibition and will be for sale. The revenues will go to a project in Scottish healthcare.
I submitted a color pencil remix of the famous Milkmaid by Vermeer.
Last week a tweet by Miranda Keeling (@MirandaKeeling) made me laugh and encouraged me to do something creative with this tweet.
In my mind I could see the elderly woman and boy sitting opposite to each other, and I wanted to put this mental image into a drawing.
Since I’m not that good at drawing, I started with Bazaart app on my iPad. I searched the web for three images: a photo of the inside of a train, a boy and an elderly woman. After I found images of my liking, I imported those into Bazaart and made a collage.
From Bazaart I exported the collage as an image to my iPad, and imported it into my drawing app ProCreate. In ProCreate I traced the outlines and saved the result as an image to my iPad.
Back to Bazaart, I imported the drawing and added the text of Miranda’s tweet to the drawing. Then I exported the result as an image and uploaded it to Twitter as a reply to Miranda’s tweet.
