Today, I would like to talk about the subject to draw/paint with iPad, “The lights”. I came to realise that drawing the lights with iPad gives much more pleasure to my eyes than drawing it on a paper. One of the reasons is quite simple, you are drawing the lights on the backlit canvas (iPad), so literally it will illuminate once you put the colour on it. It’s more magical than you think.
If you have an iPad and any drawing/painting apps, try putting any bright colour on the dark background, I tell you it would look great. See the following iPad Arts for an example.

The painting of flowers (below) is nothing to do with the light, however doesn’t it glow beautifully?

The painting of pear (below) had been made by using one of the techniques I introduced in my iPad Art Wrokshops. It gives a wood cut print / stencil / stained glass look. Erika who’d never done the digital painting before created this particular piece on the first day of the workshop, it really amazed me.

If you are interested in iPad Art and have 9 more minutes to spend, I highly recommend you to watch one of the tutorial videos (below) made by the Norwegian Artist, Nikolai Lockertsen who creates amazingly detailed iPad Art. He recently uses Procreate app a lot which became my most favourite app as well, if you buy the Procreate app it comes with his painting (below) as an exapmle art work. As you see, he uses the lighting so effectively in his paintings which I deeply admire.
It is so inspiring to see how he created the car head light (around the point of 4’50”) in the video.
