Brushes finger painting...


This is a little 'digital finger painting' done on my iPad in the Brushes app this morning at Starbucks. The Starbucks I was at has a lovely view of our Grand Mesa, if you look over the tops of all the fast food places that have cropped up there lately. This is not a great piece of art, not even for a finger painting. But I wanted to share with you a fun feature of the Brushes app. When you are finished, you can have it play back your creation process, showing the steps you went through to make the image. So I have done a video of that on my iPhone. (Oh, what did I do before Apple came into my life?) The video isn't great, as I'm holding the iPad on my knees and the iPhone in my hand, so all is a bit wobbly, but you can at least get the idea. How fun is this stuff? The video goes through the process twice. The flashy stuff at the end of the process is me switching layers around to see the effects. (I have used three separate layers in this little painting, with the lower layer a solid blue, and the upper one a very transparent layer.)

How amazing is this! I hope you are getting a commission from Apple.

Ha, Mary! That would be something, wouldn't it? Instead, they just keep somehow getting money from me!
