Portrait of Daniela: Inkpad and ArtRage on iPad

Daniela For JKPP-art-drawing

This is a portrait of Daniela for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. I used Inkpad for the drawing and imported it into ArtRage to create the texture. I used the Watercolor “canvas” and the oil painting brushes to give it a more painterly feel. Glasses are always a challenge but I loved their red color.

Write Up of The Whimsical and Macabre Exhibit


The Whimsical and Macabre Exhibit at the Grassy Noel Gallery will be ending in the next two days but I was fortunate to get a write up in our local paper and online here. The Gallery will also be sponsoring a collaborative art event this week and I will be posting some thoughts and pictures from the event in a couple of days.

Sophia or Sofia? Inkpad on iPad

Sophia Loren-retro-Hollywood-glamour

This started out as a portrait of Sophia Loren but after it was done it reminded me of a retro Sofia Vergara. She plays one of my favorite characters on Modern Family. I used the Inkpad app and then used PicGrunger to give it an aged look. I wanted to give it the look of a vintage movie poster.

Tribute to Man Ray: Inkpad and ArtRage on iPad

MAAP: Man Ray

I created this Tribute to Man Ray for the Flickr group “Mobile Artists Assigned Paintings”. Every two weeks the group is asked to create a tribute or work of art inspired by a different artist or theme. This is a great group because it forces you to go out of your comfort zone and look at artists you might not have known about. This portrait is based on a photo taken by Man Ray of Kiki de Montparnasse. Kiki, an artists model, was Man Ray’s companion for most of the 1920’s.

Here is the Inkpad version of the drawing:
