Nice clean handling of shapes. This makes me recall Picasso's heavy set figures romping on the beach--though she looks nothing like them. I tried using a stylus, but my finger worked best.
I like the color palette, that's usually the deal breaker for me. I would be interested to know how this differs from the typical work you do using the tools of the trade, from the POV of process. I personally find computer work and hand work very different in feel and outcome.
Thanks, Linda.There is huge difference between styluses. Finding one intended for drawing makes a big difference. That said, I think I did this in the interim between losing one stylus and getting another.
Thanks, Paula.Much of the creation is the same for me because I haven't been using layers or some of the other amazing techie things available on the app.So most of the difference comes from the difference in response between the app and a real brush or pen. I naturally press harder to make a darker mark, but that isn't what happens with the app, for example.
i know nothing about I-pad painting, but this is great, love the pose and the colors !
Thanks, Jane.Mixing colors in this app is fun. Nothing to wash up.
Fresh and clean.
I have painting capacity in both photo shop and illustration - the easiest to use was a program called Corel Painter. But upgrades don't allow for it any longer. Anyhow, I never got into it. It seemed that going through a bunch of paint nibs, strokes, percentage of density etc always seemed counter intuitive.
How neat is this. I have to say it didn't look like your work when I first saw it. - only when I scrolled to make sure i was on the correct blog did I see I was. I am interested with the fascination with making art on the computer. I tried it but missed the texture and surface. It was all so smooth.Do love your color and the earring is a kick!
Thanks, Karin, Liz and Julie.
Liz, I agree. Too many possibilities and decisions to make interfere with expression. When I use a drawing app, I limit myself to particular tools and settings. Sometimes, I do an iPad version of doodle, where I try every mark and setting I can find. But that's not usually anything I do when I'm intent on capturing an image.
Julie, for me, the ipad is a creative alternative when paints and pastels are not available to me.I'm In the process of setting up my studio, my first in a couple of years. Just lugged my big easel and palette out of storage.
