I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.

I enjoy the convienience of doing Life Drawing on the IPad, and have less paper to store. I can still get the work completed in a similar time frame, 1 hour.

I thought I would show how the Oil Pastel looks done on the IPad in Art Set Pro when it’s not blended, a more fair comparison to the traditional oil pastel.

Starting with the most obvious ways to render a pear, I had to try the real oil pastel too. Although the IPad version was more polished, probably because I haven’t done as much with the IPad painting.

This is an exercising in how many ways can I find to render a pair, starting with some of the most basic. In this case on the IPad using the Art Set Pro App with the oil Pastel tool.

I think using the IPad for Life Drawing works well. I was able to get the figure done in the 1.5 hour session, and I did the chair and background at home.
I used the Art Set Pro app on the ipad, because it behaves very close to natural media. I like the color pencil for drawing, and for coloring and shading I like the oil pastel, and paint. I manipulated it with the eraser, rag and water tools. I used a Wacom Bamboo Stylus.

I decided to try using the IPad at our Life Drawing Group. I haven’t used the IPad there since I had my first Ipad 1, when it came out. You have to change it up a bit once in a while.
