I loved the new animated film “Loving Vincent,” which was hand painted by 100 artists in the Van Gogh style. The film inspired me to see how good, a digital oil painting effect I could get on my IPad Pro. I used the KDAN animation program, to sketch the animation, and painted the individual frames in a paint program, Art Set Pro. Background is repeated every 4 frames. It was worth the extra effort to use the paint program.
Although I’m happy with the painting, I want to have thicker paint like some of my other works. I did an experiment of leaving a dollop of each for 15 hours prior to adding the paint to my pallette although it was thicker, it was not thick enough to my liking. I will try leaving out longer before adding it. If I can find the right amount of time, it’s just a matter of planning ahead.
