I have been looking at some of the paintings that people have done using their iPads, and I think that if I study it for a little bit, and then practice as I go, I might just get the hang of doing this ! Some of these digital paintings are totally amazing ! I used to love drawing and painting with tempera water-based paints when I was younger; but after I had a family to take care of, it was hard to have the free time to just sit and paint somthing, and I pretty much stopped doing it. I did try the Artex paints which were in a tube with a ball-point (like a pen) on the tip, and those were more of an acrylic paint. I could use those to paint on most surfaces; so I decorated the kid's clothes, and did little projects like that. Now, I think that I would like to learn to paint again, and this time, I want to learn to do it with the iPad. I am going to attach a video that explains how the "Procreate" painting app works, and demonstrates making a painting using that program. I think that you would really enjoy doing this, too, @Ina I. Wonder ! I know that it is a lot different from what either one of us is used to doing; but it looks like there are lots of good tutorials on youtube, and we won't waste any paper when we start practicing. To see more of the ipad paintings ( played back at higher speeds so you can watch them happen), just search for iPad painting on youtube.
