iPad Art: Fly Free

Fly Free iPad Painting

Today’s featured iPad painting is titled ‘Fly Free’ and is the work of Deborah McMillion, aka Hotel Midnight – a long-time favorite here.

Here’s the artist’s own introduction to this one, along with her listing of tools used in its creation:

Oh that first initial feeling of freedom as the cables snap and the carousel animals go free. Free as they fly but not when they land. Did you think they would run?

SketchbookPro for iPad, distressedFx, alien sky, hair done with underlayer NASA shots from space “cyclone”.

Fly Free is another great example of the two things that always stand out for me in McMillion’s work: the painting is striking and grabs my attention right away, and then her description takes you into the story that inspired it.

You can see lots more of these striking paintings and their accompanying stories at McMillion’s  Hotel Midnight Flickr stream.

iPad Art: Rhino

Rhino iPad painting

I love this iPad painting, love Rhinos, and love the theme of this series of iPad paintings by Jaime Sanjuan Ocabo. It’s just titled ‘Rhino’ and here is the artist’s own intro to it and to the series””:

This is the fourth painting in the series dedicated to endangered species.
Now is the turn of the rhinoceros.

It’s so sad to see news of any endangered species, but especially so when it’s about such an impressive, ancient looking creature like the Rhino. I like that this iPad painting brings out the best of the Rhino, while also implying the danger the species is in.

iPad Art: A New Beginning

A New Beginning iPad Painting

Who doesn’t at least once in their life like the idea of just sailing off into the sunset? I know I have at times and this iPad painting definitely brings back those feelings.

It’s titled ‘A New Beginning’ – here’s a little more about it, via the artist himself, Google+ member Ron Grafe:

“A New Beginning” – Sailing into the sunset? Or the beginning of a new day? Doesn’t matter as long as you live each day to it’s fullest potential. Created with the Procreate App

I love the colors of the sky and the lines of the sailboat in this one. I’d like to be on that boat on that evening.

iPad Art: Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder


Today’s featured iPad painting brings to mind scenes from a Hemingway novel, or even more so a passage from ‘A Moveable Feast’. It’s powerful and gripping, like any good Hemingway tale, and a little surreal and romantic too.

It’s titled ‘Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder’, and is the work of Michael Seidman. Seidman has a huge portfolio of his artwork shared on his Flickr stream – which is well worth a visit.
