A Lot had happened these past 2 Years: The mobile gallery for the Sheep Incognito has been parked, just waiting to get rolling again, after this pandemic is over. On the Family Front, there has been a graduation on the front porch, a wedding in the back yard, a birth of a beautiful grandson, and so many more things that all served to keep us from getting depressed about being stuck at home.
Painting had to take a break, with all those happenings going on – and it has evolved into more digital painting on the iPad, in ProCreate – because it’s nice to sit outside sipping coffee, while painting, instead of being cooped up inside.
Here is the latest of this new-fangled process I am still trying to master:
TITLE: “Highland Rendezmoo” – available on the website in various sizes and finishes:
Now offering workshops for Beginners to Intermediate – learn to use your IPad or IPad Pro to create your art digitally.
With the development of new tools, artists need to keep up with the times, to not fall behind their peers that made the jump into any of the new media available out there.
And, the longer you wait, the harder the transition will be: with new features and capabilities being added to the new digital painting field, it is important to get started early on, to ensure you don’t lose the connection.
I’ve been using my IPad, Ipad Pro, and yes, even my IPhone to create my digital paintings for the past four years or so. And as time goes on, it has become clear that this art form is NOT going away, but instead just might take over much of the artworld of our time.
Of course, this does not mean your painting skills will become obsolete – quite the contrary.
The artists that will rise above the noise will be the ones that have the traditional artist eye, but with the powerful new tool of digital painting software and hardware at their fingertips.
While it seems daunting, and to many fine visual artists just a bit “fake” – there is nothing fake about using powerful tools to make your art improve, or more vibrant, or easier to work with, easier to print, etc..
We are now offering 5 hour workshops where you can get started with the basics of setting up your IPad, installing the software, starting a new painting, using brushes, and how to get colors, and the other tools in the software to become your friends, rather than nemesis. You will quickly see why so many artist are starting to use these powerful apps for their artwork. It lets us retain our style, but with the added power of digital tools that are not available out in the real studio otherwise.
