My first Kindle Fire photo app experiment!



Here’s my first photo taken with the Kindle Fire photo app of an older drawing of mine, Faye & Toni, which is displayed on a wall at the moment (which is why the image is slanted and rather odd looking.)

Colored pencil on white paper isn’t my usual mode as you may know for I tend to prefer the depth of colored pencil on black paper. Still, the ladies do seem quite happy, don’t they? (Or can you tell with those blubbery lips?)  Winking smile

Now this drawing and several others on white paper were perpetrated between 1995 and 1999 and are too large to fit in a home scanner bed. The size of this image is 18” H by 24” W so you see what I mean: no scanning, no publishing in my online galleries.

But since I have the Kindle photo app to play with, perhaps I’ll show  you photo-app’d facsimiles of my larger never-before-published drawings from the late 90s and beyond. In fact, it may be fun for me and somewhat surprising for you.

Oh, and if you’re experienced using a similar app for a tablet, please leave a comment on this blog if you wish with handy hints for better photo-taking for I’d definitely appreciate it!
