Re: April 2019, Monthly Challenge and Smalltalk.

Nice effort, SoCalDan. Are you going to refine that "smudge" style appearance, or is that the technique you are going to stay with? I notice it could really "pop" if you went grittier in a couple of pieces, like the city scenes you painted awhile ago. Do you also use a stylus in your electronic art?

Thanks Lawrence...I really haven't given any thought to the style. It just is the way they turn out. I kind of like the "Abstracty" feel it creates. I have been drawing on my phone with a stylus for about 6 years and I guess I have developed a sort of style. I have done some more refined/crisp pieces but I really just let the moment create itself. I don't put a lot of thought into them. I really don't use a computer anymore...I do all my digital art and photo editing on my phone using a stylus. It used to be pretty challenging, but now it is pretty natural.

All of them are fun and we enjoy perusing each one. Also the beach scene speaks to me.

Mm fennel, that makes me hungry! Beautiful contrast in that.

Dan, those are great. The twistee treat is my favourite, anything with icecream makes me happy.
