Black Iris

I made this with Sketchbook for the iPad, using this photo. It was one of my first attempts at iPad art, using a photo and tracing over it. I was trying to get that effect of when you are doodling in class with a ball point pen.

Most of my attempts at iPad art involve tracing a photo. As someone who once attended art school many years before, I have never lost that feeling that it is somehow “cheating” to trace a photo. Good thing I’m not being graded on it.

Sometimes I think I take way too many pictures of flowers. They’re like the low-hanging fruit of photography. I mean how hard is it to take a bad picture of a flower?

Still. I love this picture. The stillness of it, the vibrancy. And by saying I love this picture, it’s not like I can take credit. You use a good camera with a wide open lens, point it at God’s creation, and this is what you get.
