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.
I’ve been on vacation. At this time, we were exploring the Keewenaw Peninsula around Lake Superior in Michigan. It would be a great opportunity for Plein Air painting, but I’m with family and we’re always on the move. I thought to squeeze it in while we were sitting on the beach, but the only option was my IPad. This would be great if not for sunlight’s glare on the screen. I used Art Set Pro on my IPad with a brush stylus. Fortunately I had colors picked for landscape on my palette. I made some revisions after I got inside. I considered it a worthwhile exercise. I’m heading home today.
