This is a video of a recent digital painting I did using my iPad and the Procreate App. I created my own digital brush to paint the planter and create its earthy texture.

Video of Digital Painting in Procreate

This is a digital painting I did using the Procreate app on my iPad Pro. It is painted on many layers. The neutral background layer of the Lilies was sketched awhile back in Procreate. I imported it in for my background layer. I like the neutral colors letting the butterflies take center stage. Painting in layers is also a good way to create collage type painting/art.

Practicing My Digital Painting

I’ve been practicing my digital painting and also working my way through an online digital drawing and painting course using the Procreate app. Procreate is one of the best digital painting/drawing apps I’ve used. I have used it for quite some time but there are lots of things I haven’t discovered about using the app so I decided to buy into an on line workshop. It has proven to be worth the money as far as learning the mechanics of the app. One of the things I’ve learned is to use the drawing guide and the symmetry tool. It is very helpful in drawing objects that have a symmetrical form as in the wine glass. I have softened some edges so it doesn’t look to mechanical after the initial drawing. That choice is up to you.

New Digital Art

It’s been awhile since I have posted and I am sorry about that. I’ve been traveling and having way too much fun. I’ve also had some commission work taking up a lot of my time also. Because of my busy schedule i’ve been working on my ipad pro a lot more doing digital art. Here are a few pieces and a link to my Society6 storefront. https://society6.com/lyndapikearts or click on Society6 in the Links list at the right.

More Digital Painting on the Road

In the digital paintings below I demonstrate the value of using an underpainting color. This can be done digitally or in real paint painting. With real paint you have to choose your underpainting wisely, as it is not as easily changed as it is with digital painting. With digital painting you have the ability to put the underpainting on a seperate layer that you can change and delete easily without disturbing your painting. Using a warm color under a coolpainting can give your painting a little complementary punch and adds a little excitement to your strokes. Cooler colors under a cool painting can give it a more calming effect. This technique works best with oils and acrylics, real and digital. Give it a try.

Digital Painting on the Road

Yes’ I am still on the road. The only art I have been able to do is digital. Thank goodness for my ipad pro. I just finished working on this digital painting of the Ennis, Montana area. The top one is the original, but with the magic of digital manipulation I can change the season and the mood of the painting. What one do you like best?
