In his recent exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 76-year old British artist David Hockney included recent artworks created on his iPad using the Brushes app. Observing Hockney’s skillful use of digital media may banish your skepticism about working with non-traditional, technological tools. If you would like to learn more about digital painting, author Jardine’s book is a perfect introduction. She gives information about a variety of popular art apps, brushes, and styluses as well as advice on using particular techniques to create the desired effects. Projects include portraits, still lives, and object studies and the effects can mimic fine pencil drawings, watercolor and oil painting, and pointillism. You can also manipulate photographic images. Whether you are a doodler or an accomplished artist, this book will unleash new ideas and inspire creative projects.
