“A Dance of Branches” – Painted with Art app Media.

Landscape painting

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

There was a frost outside this morning, and I lay cosy, warm in bed; sloshing about with paint on my iPad, in an app called “UBrush Pro”. It has a lovely “feel” to the paint – a wonderful watery effect – with an edge of unpredictability.

Qualities I enjoy with watercolour on paper – and which can, understandably, be difficult to find on an iPad!

However, this simple, little app with it’s uncluttered, easy to use panel, manages to deliver quite a satisfying watercolour experience. I’d say, a step beyond what I’ve discovered so far, in the better known art apps I use. I also really like the app’s coloured pencils – they seem so soft… Difficult to explain, the “feel” which accompanies the experience, of drawing and painting on an iPad. I gather it must be due to the power of visual perception. I don’t think I’d find iPad art so rewarding without this sensory experience.

This landscape was a product of play, memory and imagination – good fun.

Have a great day!
