I recently purchased an Ipad 2. I had been contemplating it for quite awhile mostly thinking of using one of the many drawing programs. I have an art degree from a very long time ago, but haven’t really done anything except weaving for a very long time. Sometimes I get out art supplies, but it has been so long the white page greatly intimidates me. I had experimented several years ago making our Christmas card using the adobe drawing program that came with the mac; however, it was awkward going trying to use a mouse to control what what going on the screen.
My son-in-law was doing some great pictures on his Ipad, so this and being away from my husband (using Facetime while apart), gave me the incentive I needed to spend the money on the ipad. And, of course now Facetime will come in really useful in seeing my new grandson.
I love using this art program, and I’m sure I will experiment with others as time goes by and I understand how to use them better. I think I like the instant gratification of creation and the easy erasure of mistakes. You can’t really destroy the canvas.
In the picture above I combined so many different mediums. In future attempts I am planning on trying to work with one medium at a time.
