A few more trial images using some of the painting/layering apps. I am still finding it pretty awkward to switch back and forth between apps. but I am hoping that this will fade away in time. Have to say that there are some amazing apps available for the iPhone/iPod/iPad.

A few paintings that have been on the back burner for a while. Still searching for a style, so there is a different approach to each image, however Brushstroke is turning out to be my go-to app for most situations.

Slim to None

Just a single painting today. I was testing the PinholeCam2 app on my iPad4 and shot some photos in the backyard. One looked sort of interesting or a least had the potential to be. The apps used were Snapseed, Brushstroke, and A+Signature. It is interesting how a rather mundane photo can be transformed using the Brushstroke app, and become both visually and emotionally transformed.

Still Working On The Process

 A few new digital paintings. I am still exploring the painting apps and looking for a style that I feel works for me. There are so many options that it take time to sort through them.

The Foray Continues

A few more digital paintings. As before, I am trying out various painting apps. Some times there are real surprises, such as the monochrome painting. I thought that I would see what the effect of running a B&W photo through the Brushstroke app would be. Total surprise, it turned out to be a very strong image. Who would have thought? All the paintings were edited using Snapseed and Brushstroke with the exception of Early Light, where Waterlouge was used.

Additions to the Chaos

Still working my way through the ins and outs of some of my painting apps. Trying to get a handle on what works for me, and try to settle on one or two apps. You could spend years trying out apps and then there are more coming out weekly. All were shot using the iPod Touch and the Histamatic app. Here are three more paintings:

Still Exploring

A couple of new digital paintings. I am still sorting through some of the many painting apps available for the iPhone and iPad. It can be a bit overwhelming to say the least. ArtRage and Brushstroke are pretty impressive. I am starting to try out Waterlogue, and also I follow the blog Art of Mob to see what others are using and what they think of a particular app. http://artofmob.blogspot.com/

A Different Aproach

Here are a few more digital paintings that I have done over this last few days. I am exploring the various painting apps and styles available, and see them as just trial runs,  not necessarily finished works. At this point the journey is just beginning. Kurt

Getting Started

The merging of new technologies and traditional mark making very much intrigues me. As a result, I have begun working with the iPad and various painting apps to explore digital painting. With a background both in abstract painting and digital photography, I thought this might be a way for me to combine that old love with my recent explorations in alternative photography. Below are some examples of recent attempts at learning this new way of creating art.
