Our featured iPad painting today is another by a big favorite round here, Deborah McMillion, aka Hotel Midnight.
As always, there’s a great back story behind this fun iPad artwork. I love the journey that this image has taken on its way to being shared here, as described below by the artist herself:
The only one of my digital paintings to go from ZeusDrawMobile on my iPhone 3g. Then to ZDM stretched on the first iPad. That would be Number 1 in 2010.
In 2011 I redid it from the ground up on Sketchbook Pro after it upgraded all those layers. At that time she acquired the diving board rail. And finally using SBP, Brushstroke and Alayer she takes one more bow.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Her Final Dive.

Our featured iPad painting today is titled ‘Mis extraños amigos. “Mascara”. 2015’. ‘My Strange Friends: Mask’ in English.
It’s part of the excellent My Strange Friends series, and the second iPad painting we’ve featured from the series, by Alberto Viladrosa. It was created on his iPad using the Paper by FiftyThree app.
I love the colors and shading on this one, and also all the non-expressive but somehow still gripping facial expressions in this image and in the series as a whole.

Here’s our featured iPad painting for this weekend. It’s titled ‘The Dragon vs. The Bavarians’ and is the work of José António Fundo.
Here is the artist’s own little back story for this iPad painting:
Adonit, Sketchbook Ink and Sketchbook Pro on iPad.
Celebrating the 3-1 victory of FCPorto over Bayern München.
I think it’s a great, fun bit of celebrating your favorite team’s victory. Too bad about that second leg though, where the Bavarians triumphed.

“Round Midnight’ is the title of today’s featured iPad painting. It was created by Helene Goldberg using the ArtRage iPad painting app.
I think this one makes you think about jazz or blues and late nights and music at midnight – and those are some fine things to think about.

This iPad portrait of the presumed MVP and definite MEP (Most Entertaining Player) in the NBA this year, Steph Curry, is our featured iPad painting today.
It was created by Google+ user Devin Booker, using an iPad mini and the Procreate app. I actually cheated a little here and screen captured the final image from Booker’s iPad speed painting video on YouTube.
I hope Booker may decide to provide a final version and then I’ll replace the above image.
In any case, I love this portrait of Steph Curry, who has been my favorite basketball player to watch ever since he was tearing up March Madness with Davidson.

Today’s featured iPad painting is titled ‘Insouciance’. It was created by Flickr member nini_nini using the Zen Brush app.
It reminds me of long ago black and white movie star actresses, someone like Bette Davis. Though I’ve never actually watched one of the movies she starred in, this portrait and the title word seem to evoke her or some of her contemporaries.
Seeing this iPad painting was also a great reason to look up the word insouciance and improve my vocabulary a little today. In case you’re wondering, here’s what the Webster dictionary has for it:
a relaxed and calm state : a feeling of not worrying about anything – lighthearted unconcern : nonchalance

Our featured iPad painting today is titled ‘Mis extraños amigos’ – or My Strange Friends in English.
It was created by Albert Viladrosa, one of our big favorite iPad artists, using the Paper by FiftyThree app.
This iPad painting grabbed my attention and kept it as soon as I saw it in our Flickr group. I’m gripped by the angles in the strange friend’s face, the orange hat, and the colors throughout the image.

Our featured iPad painting this weekend is titled ‘A Portrayal of Their Love’. It’s the work of Woon Tien David Chong – and here is his brief description of his iPad finger painting:
A portrayal of their love.” An original iPad finger painting of Mr and Mrs Lee done with Procreate app. A tribute to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the founder of Singapore, and forever a source of inspiration to Singaporeans.
I like that this iPad painting feels full of love and happiness.
I’m ashamed to say I had not even heard of Lee Kuan Yew before seeing this painting. A quick read of just his Wikipedia page has taught me that he was a hugely impressive man. And that just makes this piece even more compelling.

Today’s featured iPad painting is titled ‘Breaking Bad’ and it’s a powerful portrait of Walter White, aka Heisenberg. Here’s the brief background detail on it from the artist himself, Jon Cappuccino:
original ipad painting , created freehand using artrage on ipad 2
It’s great to see he’s still getting good use out of an iPad 2, the 2011 generation of the iPad.
I love how this portrait brings out the scarier, darker side of Walter White.

Today’s featured iPad painting is ‘Between Dream and Believe’ – what a great title. It was created by Hotel Midnight, aka Deborah McMillion. Here’s the brief description / backstory from the artist herself:
THE BIG BLUE
Somewhere out in the Milky way a signpost recalls another get away at the Outer or Twilight. If only to get away from the Corner of No and Where.
A loving nod to Dance inspiration.
This selection was made by my daughter, who just turned 12 this week. She is if anything an even bigger fan of Hotel Midnight’s work than I am. Can’t argue with the (sort of still) birthday girl, and also I think Between Dream and Believe is a pretty spot-on title for a 12 year old’s pick.

Our featured iPad painting this weekend is ‘Chill Zen’, created by nini_nini.
I’m always a sucker for a painting of a handsome dog, and this one absolutely fits the bill. I love the colors of the dog’s fur and how well he or she evokes the Chill Zen feeling. It gives me a peaceful feeling to see such a content, relaxed doggie.
