Fingerpaint THIS!

Recently I joined a group on Flickr called “Fingerpaint THIS!   This group is open to artists who use the iPhone or iTouch to create art.  Every week a different photo is chosen and the members paint the assigned photograph.   So far there are about 53 members in the group.  I check on the results daily to see how the various artists have re-interpreted the original photo.  I think this is one of the most interesting groups I’ve joined because of the variety of painting apps the artists are using and the incredible imaginations of the artists.  On the first assignment which was “Nénuphar” by Anserun I basically repainted the original photo using Sketchbook mobile:



As you will see from Blue Sky Day’s Collage of the entries for that week each artwork seen alone is beautiful, but all together in the one collage they look amazing!

Week 34: L.S. Lowry

This is my re-interpretation of “Portrait of Ann” by L.S. Lowry painted in 1957. According to the Lowry website:

“Ann appears in numerous paintings and drawings; her identity remained secret as Lowry gave several different accounts, none of which have been authenticated. His favourite explanation was that she was his ‘god-daughter.'”

iPhone/iTouch Painting a Week on an Assigned Subject on Flickr

I joined Flickr in June 2009 primarily to post my iPhone art at the suggestion of another artist.  Before I joined I really didn’t know too much about Flickr and thought the site was more for photographers.  After joining I discovered a lot of amazing artists creating iPhone art through the various groups I was joining.  The one group that I’ve found to be the most interesting and challenging is “iPhone/iTouch Painting a Week on an Assigned Subject”.  Each week we create artwork based on either a theme or an artist.  For example, Week 31 was Medical Condition and Dorothea Tanning.   It gives me a chance to kind of “flex my artistic muscle” as it were, because it take you out of your own style.  The other challenge is using the various “apps” such as Brushes, Sketchbook Mobile and Layers to reproduce or emulate the styles of the various artists.

Figure Drawings

I decided to take a break from the iPhone and do some line drawings.   i found two models who volunteered to pose for with me. But how do you draw someone that won’t sit still very long?  Very quickly…
