Of Jelly Fish and iPads...

Hello to you all!

Life has been crazy/busy at school this past month, leaving me with not a lot of free time for my own art work. Most evenings this term have been spent marking and writing up new schemes of work. Recently though, I had the good fortune to use a friend's iPad and would like to share with you some drawings and paintings I have done using the programme Paper 53.

I was glad of the opportunity to try out an iPad with a drawing programme before committing to getting one of my own. I have always been fascinated by technology but fearful of the time it would take to learn how to use it properly.

However, the programme was really easy to use and it took hardly any time to to create these images I am showing you. I really enjoyed the ease and simplicity of Paper 53. Each image took me about five minutes to draw. How cool is that!

The colours blend together so vibrantly and I am really looking forward to experimenting more over the Easter holidays. I am a definite iPad convert. I will post some more drawings very soon.

In the meantime, I trust you had a wonderful Easter and I hope to catch up with some blog reading and commenting soon. I have missed seeing what you have all been creating.

Welcome back! As you may remember, I did some Paper 53 drawing, but have not had as much success as you have. Mostly I like the quirky faces (almost illustration like in nature) that I produce. I really like your use of black. What type of stylus are you using? Would love for you to discuss in future posts.

Oh my, these are beautiful Andy. I love paper 53 but don't make such lovely images. The iPad is amazing.
I have two stylus, a Wacom Bamboo and a Nomad Brush
Thanks for the visit, so glad to see you back, it means you have some time to yourself.

I am, as you know, an ipad fan so it is wonderful to see what you have created here - though I am sure it takes much more skill than you modestly claim! I will definitely look into this ... Here is another who'd be happy to hear how you did it - are you using a stylus of any kind?
