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.
