iColorama is an app with too many features to count. Sometimes I like to start with a photo and quickly add a bunch of random filters and effects. (Of course I often kick myself for not keeping track.) Here are a few examples with the original photos. All photos are from Pixabay.
I just launched my first class on Skillshare. If you have an iPad, you can learn how to create textures to use in your digital art, or print out and use in painting, collage, or as backgrounds for drawing.

You can take my class, and choose from thousands more.
Here are some of the textures I create in the class:
I just received my copy of the new Zentangle® workbook by Alice Hendon:
This is a workbook containing 366+ strings for tangling, one for every day of the year, and then some.
In addition to some Zentangle® basics, there is a great variety of strings,
including some mandala strings.
In addition to the 366 daily strings, there is a bonus section of strings created digitally by yours truly.
This is a great book for daily tangling which could evolve into an annual practice.
Here is some more artwork based on the digital marbling app Edru. As I worked, some of the images stared to look like critters. Here are a couple of examples.
These two paintings started with the same image I created in the Edru app, with different backgrounds applied in Procreate.
These two are layered with backgrounds created using iColorama, Metabrush, Procreate, and Waterlogue apps.
Finally, I belong to a Facebook group called iPad Artists – All Included. One of my pieces is included in this video of artwork from group members.
Just a quick post to check that the email subscriptions have successfully transferred to the new blog.
For the last three weeks or so, I have been beta testing an iPad app called Edru. This app recreates the traditional art of marbling that is normally done with paint. I have created a few images, and then combined them with my own background and shading techniques. Here are some of them.
If you are interested in the Edru app, scroll down to the bottom of this post for a video.
This is a short demo of the Edru app.
Here are a few more digital paintings I did in Tricia Dewey’s online class Framed Botanicals.
I recently discovered alcohol inks, and lots of YouTube videos showing the cool things you can do with them. I created a bunch of background textures for my digital art.
Here is one of the textures I created.
and here are two copies of one of the gradients from Set 023 of my digital papers.
Using the blending techniques I talked about in my last video, I created these four different blends. I can’t figure out which is my favourites.
Here is some new digital artwork based on Zentangle patterns. Most of these use techniques from my two recent YouTube videos:
This one is based on the pattern Baubles by Alice Hendon.
Huggins by Zentangle, and Bellinno by Ksenija Vojisavljevic.
Cadent by Zentangle.
Knightsbridge by Zentangle.
Neuron by Beth Snoderly.
