There’s much I’m investigating and experimenting with lately. Lots of mixed media work on paper, and little on canvas, and in between it all some work on the iPad - good fun! It’s wonderful to have some work on the go, and ideas percolating, awaiting a brush or pen. And so exciting when they get... Continue Reading →
I drew this with an “Artline” pen, (a type of pen I’ve enjoyed using for years) from a photo I took of rocks by a running stream, at a local swimming spot. I brushed over the lines with water - part of the fun is not knowing how the ink will spread. After scanning it in... Continue Reading →
Freehand drawn - with my finger - on the iPad. I used a brown paper surface, and: paint, pencil and smudge tools, in the Art Set Pro app. Have a great weekend!
I've mentioned about placing a video here of me (at least of my finger) drawing and painting on the iPad. Finally, I've (ok, my hand) has made it to the big, or rather the small screen.

Thought I'd place them into a gallery format, makes it easier to view them at a glance,... Continue Reading →
With my finger, on the iPad screen - built this up, much like I'd do with pencil on paper. Mostly drawn, from my imagination...though I always see plenty of dishes...around here! P.S Note Since blogging here I've used the handy "publicise" option, in WordPress, to send my posts to my "facebook artist page", or "fan"... Continue Reading →
Finally I've got back to trying out the app, "Procreate". It's what I call one of the more "complex" apps to use; and for a while I was quite put off by all the "bells" and "whistles". There is myriad of choices in media and mark making tools; much of which I'm not keen to... Continue Reading →
