Painting the digital way
A digital painting of Gerard Butler. Painted using my finger on the iPad.
The above photos show my process of working on a typical portrait on the Brushes App on my iPad. It doesn't really differ from painting in oils or acrylics. The main difference is that there is no mud created when applying one colour on top of another. The app provides a wonderful chance to create transparent glazes, although I haven't quite mastered the 'layering' technique that this app offers. The painting above was complete on only one layer. A second layer was added after all the painting was completed. This was just used to enhance the colour.
