New phone, and Halloween themed drawings from online zoom session, 10/30/20

New phone and Halloween themed drawings from online zoom session, 10/30/20

Sip n Sketch session #29(?), hosted by theater costume and set designers, Lisa Jordan and Cindi Taylor, 

Thank you so much for making these sessions possible. 

They curate a set of images for each session. Participants draw each selection at varying ‘pose’ lengths - until the timer rings. The most participants show their drawings briefly for a group screen shot in ‘gallery ‘ view.

My drawings are out of order, but their chronological order  number Is on each drawing.

Trying to reset wifi modem and router as per suggestion...

Well I tried last night. Not sure I did it right. Still barely even crawling. My oldest phone is on the decent data plan, but YouTube does not like the old browser it has. And I don’t have room to put in updated browser. So no youtube. I attended the zoom drawing class with that old phone tho! Amazing because that’s so small - seeing both the image on the screen share and whomever was on the current talking screen. I was again too late because of all the hoops I was going through to find a way in to the session. So instead of paper and crayon, I did the whole session on iPad w ipencil. 

During all this I was also trying to get my new phone hooked up. It had just come.  It’s not hooking up well tho because of this internet crawl. 

I think it’s crawling because of all the last minute phone banking etc that is going on.

Halfway thru class, someone’s phone dinged. I went thru mine looking for what it might be and lost my zoom in the process. Had to go back and find the email w the link and rejoin the session. I still don’t know what the warnings and messages are saying they are so ambiguous in meaning. I just bang away and hope for the best. But you can’t learn that way because you don’t know how you got there. There is no meaningful connection between action and result. My fingers don’t have enough circulation so it’s hit or miss if my taps connect with what is beneath the glass. I wish they had an iPencil for the phone. It’s much better on iPad to use the iPencil. I got it for drawing on iPads, but it’s much better on the virtual keypad too.

New iPhone (SE) - almost same body n feel as the 6S. I was hoping it would be smaller and have the sharper bezel. But I guess that is with the mini. Can’t try anything on it yet because all the updating/downloading is still happening. ...I got the red one. Not the kind of red I expected. In color yes - fire engine/Marlboro red, but not metallic. The edge all round is metallic red. The face is black. Gold would have been  good. Red and black is vampirish. I don’t like that  against red. Do not like a black screen either. Oh well. 

Because I’m copying from my 6s, it has the same screen wallpaper image, an abstract section from one of  my watercolors. So I’ll never know where I am!

 Duh - I thought it might be something like this ...I went to pay my overdue internet wifi bill. Found out my service had been suspended. I paid just now. Supposedly it could take up to 24 hours to get back on. But I think it got turned right back on!!! I just don’t understand how I was getting on internet even just a little bit.

And, yes internet n WiFi all working - that was what the problem had been! YouTube is so cute on the phone. Great to know one can participate  in a drawing zoom session in the tiny scale of a phone. Adorable!
