This week in art

First up this week, this is a colouring page by Tim Jeffs from his book Intricate Ink Animals in Detail. Coloured digitally in Procreate.

Chameleon


Over at the Digital Tangling group on Facebook, we have been talking about apps to do symmetrical drawings, namely iOrnament and Amaziograph. I prefer iOrnament because it allows me to do more detailed drawings. Here is an example. You can click each image to see a larger view.

First, I zoom in to draw what will be the centre of my mandala.

Then, I zoom out to draw the next round.

I repeat the process, up to the maximum size

Here you can see how the first part of the drawing is now a very small centre.

Got Sass!

I am still working on Robin Mead’s online class, Crazy Colorful Cityscapes.

This is a whimsical cityscape I did in Procreate, using Alice Hendon’s Ringz pattern.

And this is the cityscape I created with the rubber stamps I carved last week.

This week in art

This week, I am working on Robin Mead’s cool online class, Crazy Colorful Cityscapes.

In this cityscape collage, the buildings are cut from a variety of painted papers.

Although the course uses traditional methods, I had to try my hand at doing a digital cityscape.

In this week’s lesson, we are using stamps to create our buildings. Here is a collection of my handmade stamps.¬†I had a good collection already, and I carved some new ones this week.

This week in art

I have two more digital paintings today. This first one is based on an all-over pattern I created in iOrnament, and then coloured in Procreate.
