Beach Holiday – iPad Paintings, and Sketches on Canvas

*I draw and paint on the iPad screen, with my finger, rather than use a stylus.

Just back from a holiday, up the coast of N.S.W – a lovely time with family and friends. Here’s a few of the sea scenes I painted on my my iPad and some sketches.

Seascape with bird painting
I used paint, smudge tools and a touch of white conte crayon on the waves and on the grass, in the “Art Set Pro” app.

A little bit of abstraction. Liked the loose wash look of this one.

Another wash of thinned paint in “Art Set Pro” app. Like the simple design.

The “Scanner Pro app” is great for bringing in my works on paper or canvas into my iPad.

It picks up detail far better than a photo and you can adjust the light and darks of the image, before saving it to the iPhoto section of the iPad. You can see a comparison, in the two pics below; and following is the final drawing, after adding more media in the “Art Set Pro” app.

Drawing of a fern
Used a black “Inktense” pencil on a canvas sketch pad. This is scanned in with the “Pro Scanner app”.

Enjoyed using the smudge tools in the “Art Set Pro” app, on this scanned in drawing.

I do like the smudgy look of this drawing, but not that pleased with the overall composition.

All the best for your own art adventures.

Thanks for stopping by!
