A Step Away

Photo from my iPhone 6 modified on my iPad with lots of other stuff.  One of the BG images was a photo I took of road markings. Apps used - Leonardo, Light Brush, Stackables, Procreate and Snapseed.  Images were in some of these apps a few times.  Love making the images on my iPad but I wish I knew how I made them.  When you create in Photoshop and you are finished you have your original image with all its layers (steps) - not so with apps.

On The Move

Created on my iPad - apps used Leonardo, iColorama, Procreate, Mextures.  Well I sure am trying but I just feel I have no voice on my iPad.  I am not sure of my direction, what I want to produce and also how to do it.  The only way I know to overcome this is to just practice and work at it and learn the apps.  Hopefully my path will be revealed.

Still playing with Project 1. I took the photo of the maple leaf on my morning walk. It is fall here in the Northeast and the leaves are falling. Apps used - Leonardo, Stackables, Lightbrush, Procreate and iColorama for the paper texture and the lettering. I used Leonardo to add the pods and tree branches to the background. This is the first time I have used iColorama for text and it works really great, you can even add shadows - still learning this app. I did extract the leaf and create the png file in Photoshop. I am enjoying making these botanical images!

Botanicals Course

So I am taking a course on creating Botanical images with frames on my iPad.  These are two examples I made for the first project.  It is a fun course and I hope to learn more about some of the apps I have on my iPad.

I have decided to work exclusively on the iPad with apps for the next couple of months.  I want to get away from my dependence on Photoshop and making composite images.  I can do that and I do it well - I want to expand my artistic ability and really learn how to use the iPad and the apps I have purchased.

I am looking to make personal, simpler, and more intimate images.  I want to express myself in a new way and I am excited to start this journey.  It is a great time of year to start - I tend to spend a lot of time inside during the winter and I have this and another course lined up.  I also am gathering examples of work that I find edgy and exciting and is in keeping with what I envision myself making.   I have a list of apps I want to focus on and I want to get some sort of work flow going.

The apps used in the above work - Leonardo, Stackables, Procreate, LightBrush, and iColorama.
