Procreate drawing

A Cuppa

Created on my iPad with the Procreate app while enjoying Sunday brunch with my husband.

Ensate iris painting with ArtRage app

Ensata Iris

For this ensata iris painting, I chose the ArtRage iPad app. I wanted to simulate the watercolour effect look with a textured paper background. I tried to convey the illusion of three-dimensional space by distorting one of the standards.

Banana and Pear with Paper 53

Banana and Pear

Paper 53 is the first drawing app I installed on my iPad. No background, so it appears to be floating in space. This is before I started using a stylus. So technically, it’s a finger painting.

Vector Geisha

I recently won a copy of Corel Painter 2015, a reward for answering the surveys. This drawing is the first vector I created using Painter. I need to practice using the pen tool and the shapes.

Topaz Clean

Until today, I had no idea I could use my purchased Topaz Labs plugins from within Lightroom. This saves time. All I need to do is right click on the selected image thumbnail, Edit > Fusion Express. Then chose which plugin I want to use.
