In addition, you also appreciate the intrinsic strokes and colors used and perhaps a peek into the mind of the genius. Paintology makes it easy for anyone to start drawing with this app and tap into your hidden creative skills. Unlike paint by numbers, this mode of drawing improves your drawing strokes and observational skills which are essential to drawing and painting.

In this step by step video, you will learn how to pick the right colors, use the right brush and improve your strokes to help you become more comfortable in drawing and painting. The video will show you how to block out colors ready for drawing the details which is similar to drawing and painting in the traditional sense. The traced mode of doing the blocking helps you to attain the structure and form of the original drawing. By taking this blocked drawing, we can then continue to build up the painting by making several passes while adjusting the colors and size of the brush.

Once you have mastered the techniques of drawing with Paintology, you can do many other drawing subjects of your choice, for example, cartoon figures, landscapes, portraits and more.

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.
