Mixed Media Drawing in the “Art Set Pro” app

Pink bowl

Pink bowlsThis is a bit of a play around drawing in the “Art Set Pro” app. The bottom two drawings, show some of my drawing processes: leading from left to right, to the finished larger one above.

I used: oil pastels, crayon, thin paint washes and smudge tools; on a green toned paper. This app has quite a few different coloured and textured surfaces to choose from. *I use my finger, rather than a stylus.

Like most artists, I find the best way to learn about the properties of different media, is to do lots of experimental sketches and drawings – whether it’s in an art app, on paper or on canvas. 🙂

  1. Do you start with a ‘base coat’ color – as if you were drawing on toned paper? From the tone in the upper left corner it almost looks like it.

    1. Yes I did have a base colour; I started my drawing on a green toned paper – there’s quite a few different coloured and textured surfaces in this app.
      Given time, I’ll try them all out. Thanks for the question; I thought I had mentioned about the paper colour. I better go and add that information to my post! Always glad that you can edit, after a post. Cheerio, Janette. 🙂

    1. Thank you… If you are using “Art Studio”, you may find it a bit more difficult than the one I mostly use, “Art Set Pro”…which has a simple, straight forward design. I think ” Art Studio” has a layer system, and a more complex layout. Though with practice you’ll be right. All the best, Janette. 🙂

  3. 🙂 It is interesting and fun to see the variations and your final piece. When I look at this mixed media piece I see vibrations, movement and cheer. It reminds me of the animation videos I used to watch years ago; the artwork in those animations had life, they had scenes that were flowing and objects that seemed to breathe…this is what I see here. Thanks for sharing.
