Recent iPad ArtWorks

*I draw and paint with my finger, on the iPad screen, rather than use a stylus.

Drawing of a woman reading
Graphite pencil, a little coloured pencil and white conte, on a brown paper surface, in the “Art Set Pro” app.
Still life near window
Painted in the “Art Set Pro” app. Used: black oil pastel, charcoal, graphite penci, eraser for some highlights and white texta.
Painting of a vase of flowers.
Playing around with a bit of abstraction here. Used paint, smudge tools on a brown woven surface in the “Art Set Pro” app.
Drawing of fruit
This I began in “Procreate” using a brush setting called “gesinski ink” and one called “turpentine”. Then I took it to “Art Set Pro” app, to use those wonderful smudge tools.

Below, is a video from the “Procreate” app, before I took it into the “Art Set Pro” app, to use those naturalistic smudge tools, as you can see, above. Also added another lemon.

In most other art apps I use, tools offered for  smudging purposes, usually, give an unpleasant, unnatural looking effect.

Painting of a lemon
Painted  in “Art Set Pro” app.
Small landscape painting
Painted in “Art. Set Pro” app. Used paint, coloured pencil and smudge tools. I then cropped it by nearly a half in “iPhoto” app. Wasn’t happy with the left side at all. Though, still not particularly happy with it.
Drawing of kitchen scene
A quick sketch, in “Art Set Pro”; a sink scene. Used: black oil pastel, charcoal, paint, graphite pencil, white texta.
Drawing of women's face
I used paint, coloured pencil, smudge tools…in the “Art Set Pro” app.
Red flowers
A print from my home printer.

To the left is a print of a painting I did in the “Zen Brush” 2 app. I printed it with a border and slipped it into a simple black frame.

At the moment, I’m trying out printing more of my iPad art at home – looking into archival properties of inks and papers – printing some of my more traditional art, and trying out more mixed media experiments...also playing about with various finishes: gel medium, satin varnish, frames…and so on. In general; having fun! Hope to share some of this with you soon. *Update: I’ve further experimented with printing my art; you can read more about it on my page, “Printing iPad and Traditional Art”. 

Enjoy your day. 🙂
