iPad Artwork

After a considerable period of Artist's Block I discovered the work done by David Hockney on his iPad and decided to have a try myself.

It's a very different medium to work with and there was quite a steep learning curve, but I have managed to produce a few acceptable pictures using the App InspirePro.

2nd try - a row of trees
3rd drawing - 'After Hockney'
My first three drawings done with the iPad; learning more about the drawing tools with each attempt.

From this drawing I learned that it would be impossible to make any changes to the background behind the twigy trees.

All iPad drawings need to be worked from distance, through middle to foreground.

A similar sort of drawing with twiggy leafless trees, but this time I completed the sky before adding the trees.

Worked from a photograph taken in October in Bruges.

To date this is the digi painting I am most pleased with. The colours were blended for both sky and sea and the palm tree sillouhette added last.
