I have never even seen any of The Avengers movies, but I still find the image striking and powerful. Another great piece from Raffy, who is another of my favorite iPad artists.

iPad Art: Paint on!

Paint On iPad painting

Wow, lots of reasons to love this week’s featured iPad painting. It’s titled ‘Paint on!’ and created by Hotel Midnight.

Apart from the fact it’s the work of a favorite iPad artist, of course I love the fact that it’s an iPad painting that’s all about painting on the iPad. Here. the artist herself can explain that far better than I:

Paint on!

I do not want a smaller tablet than the Air. I do not want to go back to being mired in one spot (desktop,etc.). How to go back to the easel when you’ve had such freedom. But I would not mind a tad more space. But only if it maintains its portability. An antigrav iPad AIR would be perfect.

So who’s on board with an antigrav iPad Air?

If you have even a little bit of interest in iPad art you should absolutely go visit the Hotel Midnight Flickr stream and enjoy more of her fascinating iPad paintings. And of course you can also check out the iPad Art section here at iPad Insight.

iPad Art: Mr. Blue Sky

Mr Blue Sky iPad Painting

Today’s featured iPad art is this iPad painting of a car titled ‘Mr. Blue Sky’.

It’s by Michael Acosta, and was created using the Paper by FiftyThree app. I have to admit, I’m not even a big car guy generally – but Acosta’s iPad paintings of them could easily turn me into one. These make the cars themselves look like works of art, and sure as heck make you want to go take them for a spin right away.

Acosta mentions that this one was inspired by Google+ member Joe Frazee. I just took a look at Frazee’s Google+ page – wow, if you’re a car lover you’ve gotta go see his photos.

iPad Art: First Day of Spring

iPad Painting First Day of Spring

Today’s featured iPad painting is a perfect image for the beginning of my favorite season, Spring. The painting is titled ‘First Day of Spring’, and is the work of an iPad artist who’s a favorite any time of the year – Helene Godberg.

For me, Spring is lovely warm weather, t-shirt time, my  daughter’s birthday, a great time on the sports calendar (The Masters, the start of baseball season, NBA playoff races and more), and colors. Here in Austin colors include bluebonnets and wildflowers on the highways and butterflies and other insects coming back out.

I love the colors in this iPad painting. I also like that it feels like such a happy image, and that’s what Spring is all about here.

iPad Art: Shepherd

Shepherd iPad painting

The iPad painting above is titled ‘Shepherd’. It’s the work of Jaime Sanjuan Ocabo – featured here for the second week in a row.

I’m a huge fan of Ocabo’s work. I love the colors and the way his images capture city and rural scenes with such realism.

I especially love this Shepherd painting because it’s just such an idyllic image for those of us who earn a living in towns and cities. My office doesn’t quite compare with that hillside.

You can see more of Ocabo’s iPad artwork at his Flickr stream.
