Brushes – the superb painting app for the iPhone – is not one that I use myself, or one that I ever will. That’s only because I am utterly useless at drawing and art in general though – incapable of even drawing a stick figure that looks anything like a stick figure.
I enjoy art though, and have found over the last several months that I’m a huge fan of art created on the iPhone – as many established and even renowned artists round the world have taken up creating work on the iPhone, and in particular with the Brushes app.
Wonderful and amazing art has been created on the iPhone by people like David Hockney, probably Britain’s most celebrated living artist; Jorge Columbo, whose New York cityscape created with Brushes graced the cover of The New Yorker magazine last year; and many, many others. For more examples of the stunning iPhone art being created with Brushes, see my post over at my iPhone blog site:
My impression from talking with several prolific iPhone artists and following their comments online is that there is enormous enthusiasm for the iPad. I believe it will become an incredible mobile canvas for their creations, and will lead to even more brilliant artwork. I can’t wait to see this work.
