IPAD DRAWINGS - Ocean Series - Blue Ripples


BLUE RIPPLES
Oceans Series by Sea Dean
Copyrighted iPad drawing
Available as a one time use download or limited edition print

I've been playing with my ipad again. Well, not exactly playing, I've been working on a submission which calls for new media

As you may recall from recent ipad drawings, I'm using the simple draw app in "Notes" which has a very limited palette and set of four tools, shown in the images below. As you can imagine there is quite a learning curve to finding the capabilities of the app, but it does offer fun options of layering and overlays which make it completely different to painting or drawing with real world tools.






From left to right a colored pencil with opaque color. a translucent marker, a translucent fine marker, a rule (haven't figured out how to use it yet), and an eraser. Colors as you see are brights and muted shades plus black, white and 6 grey tones. That's it! You can achieve some different colors by overlaying the translucent colors. I use the white as a sort of moderating force to overlay colors that seem too intense or to soften an edge. 

Below is an effect created in the "Photo" app.
