I have drawn and painted quite a few “faces” in recent weeks. I used a range of media provided, in these amazing art apps. They look much like works I do on paper and canvas.
It’s so handy drawing and and painting this way. No set up of materials; I just flip open the iPad lid, and off I go. I get a lot more; sketching, experimenting and artworks completed, in a shorter space of time. Helpful, when time is sometimes difficult to find for my art and writing.
And the more you do, the better, to see where you are going!
Much of the fun, when writing and drawing, is in the process, even when the end result is not always successful..
From iPad to Print.
I’ve exhibited my artwork (on paper and canvas) only a handful of times over the years. As well, as sharing some of it in the form of handmade books of illustrated poems.
I plan to exhibit my art again, at some stage. I also hope to print more of my illustrated poems, and turn a collection of them into and ebook, using a wonderful app called “Book Creator”.
Late last year I had an exhibition of my iPad art prints in our local cafe. It went well. There’s more information about it on my page, “Some App Information”.
The prints are excellent and reasonably priced. *Update: now I’m able to print great quality prints at home; and these (along with work in traditional media) will serve well for any future exhibitions.
Before printing my art I place a white border around them. I often use a page in the Book Creator app, to do this.

I’ve discovered blogging is like having a journal online, and helps me: sort out my art, try out ideas, and organise, develop and plan some of my art adventures. I also pray and try to follow God’s lead in all I do – a comfort and a blessing.
So God willing, I’ll get time to do all that I want to do…whatever happens, I’m thankful.
Hope you have a happy, creative and blessed weekend.
