This is just the initial draft of this digital painting. Once I put the values down, relative to what I… was seeing in the photo, I really felt like I was able to paint spontaneously on this one. I plan to make a fully-colored version with more detail. Painted on my iPad Air with a plain stylus 8/17/19. Based on a Creative Commons photo from Pixabay.
A digital oil painting of my back yard toward sunset in 2015 or 2016. I either photographed it and finished it on my PC with ArtRage, or started it on my iPad Air and finished it on my PC with ArtRage.
Created on my iPad Air using ArtRage and a plain stylus, based on a Creative Commons photo, 11/29/17. I traced the shape of the land and trees from the photo. I just put the finishing touches on it today 1/24/18.
Digitally painted from imagination. This is a revision of one of my favorite paintings. My preferred style of painting is semi-impressionist. Although I normally do my digital paintings on my iPad, ArtRage for the PC is the most capable application I know for producing digital paintings with a traditional painting appearance. If you have a graphics tablet, even the process is a lot like the real thing, as you smear and scrape thick paint around on a textured surface that the paint interacts with.
Digitally painted on my iPad Air from imagination, on about 6/12/16.
