Lilly Pads Abstract


While thinking of Lilly Pads I played with the Sketches App on my new IPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Watercolor on steroids! How delightfully playful to create! Could be a very useful technique!

Lately I have been bogged down with other projects, nearing the completion of the mural, and preparing for a big change. Hopefully by the end of summer I can back to doing more free painting, and blogging.

Life Drawing with Ipad

I enjoy the convienience of doing Life Drawing on the IPad, and have less paper to store. I can still get the work completed in a similar time frame, 1 hour.

IPad Plein Air on the Beach

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.

I thought I would show how the Oil Pastel looks done on the IPad in Art Set Pro when it’s not blended, a more fair comparison to the traditional oil pastel.
