Finger Painting for Grown Ups

Yesterday I discovered a drawing/painting app. for the iPad and got quite addicted to it, spending some time sitting on the couch painting with my finger. I was experimenting with all the different materials, surfaces and colours and having a ball.

  Valentine Sketch (W.I.P.) | Digital Painting | Not for Sale

I came up with the above image of Valentine. I got to the stage where I could not get any more detail with my broad finger tip so I'll have to invest in a stylus especially for drawing on the iPad, if I'd like to continue this one {or do others}.

Above are some screen shots of the app. in use, they were sourced from the iStore. I would recommend Art Set, it's an easy to use app. that emulates the studio environment without the mess.  It's got great reviews, is No. 1 on the paid apps. at the moment and it's only $0.99.

  1. Now all I have to do is get an ipad (sigh). I hope Santa is listening.

  2. This is crazy good! Wow! Very nice job. Thank you for joining us and I do hope you'll return next week. :)

  3. Oh, I'll have to try that one...I have a few others, but I like the effect you got

  4. Von, I hope Santa is listening too. They are lots of fun.

    Sophia, thanks for the lovely comment and for hosting your blog party, I'm enjoying looking around.

    Geri, it's so fantastic, I like the effects you can get with it.

    Wishing you all a creative and productive week. Xx

  5. Hi

  7. Wow, Tracey, that's brilliant!! Hard to believe you can achieve such realistic results digitally. You can almost smell the paint. It would be nice to do if you were poorly or too tired to get in your studio but still wanted to be creative - or if you were out and about with a bit of time to spare. Until I saw this, I didn't think I would ever want an iPad but now I'm not so sure... Lol!
