Learn to draw a portrait with Paintology
Learn digital drawing on the android tablet or phone
Understand shape, form, texture and tones in a drawing


  • Basics of drawing
  • Have the Paintology app installed on your android phone or tablet


In this drawing, we are going to draw this portrait couple using the free Paintology drawing app. The app is available for free from the Google play store, you just need an android phone or tablet.

We first draw the outline and do some blocking of colors using the traced mode of the drawing in the Paintology app. In this way, we can get better accuracy of the shape and form, especially the faces. With the color picker we can translate the exact colors that are in the original image and transfer to our own drawing canvas.

After the outline/blocking, we do the complete drawing by freehand. This will help you to increase your freehand drawing techniques as well as the application of tones in a drawing.

I come from a very technical background but like many folks, I am very passionate about drawing and painting. In the recent years I have rekindled some of the lost interest in drawing when I was young.

I have done extensive drawings using pastels, pencils, acrylics and watercolors. My new found love is digital drawing and how versatile this medium truly is.

I hope to express and share my passion through these tutorials.
