August 22, 2021 – Starting the Day with Dappled Light and Love

There was gonna be no pretense about the heat here in Austin today, not to mention the Covid resurge rivaling and in places surpassing the worth of the nearly two years of pandemic.

But Sheila and Max and I set out before breakfast this morning, before the sun had shrank away the surprise morning clouds, and managed a playful walk about the area.

I even talked them into sitting together at one of the benches at the entrance to the Greenbelt, but couldn’t convince them to meander down to the path for a bit, lol!

Still, all in all, I’ll count these two blessings in my life ♥️

And, I did get some “thinking” done re how to approach a new line art on watercolor paper I want to paint.

And, I managed to get in two different approaches of line art to a new figure sketch I want to experiment with dapple light on. So I can’t complain, too much, lol!

And even though there’s elements of each version I really like, that’s okay. I wanted to know the visual differences from two differing line art approaches – one from a black & white photo rendition & the other via an option in Affinity Photo to detect lines in an image.

I’m pretty sure I want to merge the parts I like. Once I do (no timetable) I’ll post the result 😊

Meanwhile, time to try out our new Disney+ app w/the 8 yr old ♥️

Take care everyone – please stay well! 💕
