The Gift

The iPad has opened up a whole new world for me. It is a little hard on my eyes, but I guess anything that I stare at as long as I do the apps in this tablet would cause eye fatigue. I am teaching myself to use iColorama.

I find iColorama to be a bit challenging and obscure, but like everything else it begins to unfold with practice. I don’t think there is a class about how to navigate it and all the filters and effects it contains. I just try a bit of everything. Unfortunately when I like what I achieve I have no idea how to duplicate it again! I think there is a way to record what I do, but I haven’t tried that. I really need to if I want to understand what I did.

The piece above, "The Gift" was created from several sources to create a collage. Different digital brushes were used to paint it and textures were applied. Some touch ups were made in another app called Procreate. 

The next item on my wish list is an iPad Pro and Apple pencil. Mainly because of the memory and power it has over my little iPad air. There are just so much one can do with the iPad I have, but I am not complaining, because I love it and I just can’t justify spending so much on another one now.
