Palette Republic app

Oops, I made a mistake in my last post! I have corrected it now though. The app I have been using in my course to get the colours in the photo is called Palette Republic and is available on iPhones and Android. I had called it Moment by mistake. The Moment app has easily adjusted setting for poor light etc. and is for taking photos

I can't believe that I made such a huge mistake. When I look back at my photos I realise that I had wrongly named them and so that is where the error stemmed from.

How did I discover my mistake?
My husband has installed a security camera at our front door and so he has been using my phone to work out how I can get movement alerts etc to the app on my phone. As he handed me back my phone this morning, he asked ' What is that Palette Republic app on your phone'.

As soon as he said it, I knew I had made a mistake and couldn't wait to get onto my blog and correct it.

Here are a couple more photos from the Palette Republic app.

Sorry for the confusion, I suppose it has also stemmed from me trying to fit too much into my days. Some of the online courses are finished now, so I can settle down and concentrate on getting some of my work done.

Here is a little collage I made with my gelli printed and painted papers. Our front yard was full of these little toadstools this year. I took a lot of photos.

This is the photo that used as a reference.

It is a very realistic version of the photo and I want to get away from doing such realism. I would rather try to be more abstract and arty. The more I study art, I think that creating realism is a learned skill but why create it when there is a perfectly good photo of the same thing already!

That's my plan, anyway.
Bye for now,

That app looks wonderful (whatever it's called!). Alas I don't have one of those types of phones so not available to me. There are other ones online though that I have used. Don't ask me the names right now tho' because I'm totally not pulling them out of my brain.
I thought your comment about trying to be more abstract with your work interesting. I'm trying for the opposite and constantly searching for ways to make what I do look more like the photos I'm working from. This coming from one who has never had a day of art training in her life and it doing everything on a wing and a prayer!

Thanks Magpie Mumblings, I suppose we are all just on our own journey and trying to improve somehow. That's what makes life interesting!
