“Loving Vincent” Inspired

I loved the new animated film “Loving Vincent,” which was hand painted by 100 artists in the Van Gogh style. The film inspired me to see how good, a digital oil painting effect I could get on my IPad Pro. I used the KDAN animation program, to sketch the animation, and painted the individual frames in a paint program, Art Set Pro. Background is repeated every 4 frames. It was worth the extra effort to use the paint program.

I like this cool pose with a hat and sun glasses! Even more fun, done on the IPad. It is a slick way to do life drawing! Saves paper too. 🙂

IPad Plein Air on the Beach

I’ve been on vacation. At this time, we were exploring the Keewenaw Peninsula around Lake Superior in Michigan. It would be a great opportunity for Plein Air painting, but I’m with family and we’re always on the move. I thought to squeeze it in while we were sitting on the beach, but the only option was my IPad. This would be great if not for sunlight’s glare on the screen. I used Art Set Pro on my IPad with a brush stylus. Fortunately I had colors picked for landscape on my palette. I made some revisions after I got inside. I considered it a worthwhile exercise. I’m heading home today.

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.

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.
