This course will teach you how to paint beautiful painting on your iPad with ArtStudio. The course includes step by step videos explaining the layout of the ArtStudio and creating a painting of sweet peas. Through out the course you will learn all the features and how to apply them to your painting. You will learn how to use layers, create your own brushes, transform layers, and detail painting. All you need is an iPad and the ArtStudio iPad app in iTunes. Once you finish this course you will be able to paint anywhere anytime with your iPad. It's the new canvas for artists. The course is 2 hours, however I would take the time and just relax and have fun. As a professional artist I know the more you paint you will feel positive with your results. Once you start painting with the iPad it will open your eyes to a new world.
Video showing all the ArtStudio painting tools in the left toolbar.
I will start to paint the Sweet Pea iPad Painting. I'll be blocking in the buds and stems with simple shapes on a layer.
I'll be adding a new layer and painted in the caps of the buds with simple shapes.
Starting to paint in the detail of the buds. Using different tools like the scatter tool, blur/sharpen tool , dodge/ burn tool and spray brush. Softened the edges of the buds.
We are going to be working on the next layer with the caps on the buds. Using the spray brush to shade the caps. I’m going to be adding some red color in the stems with the scatter brush. Also I will be using the dodge/ burn tool and soften the lines. we will also use the smudge tool
In this video I will be painting on the stems and leaves with the dodge/ burn tool. I will also be adding detail with the spray brush and highlights with a brighter color. Using a small pencil I will be painting in the veins in the leaves.Copy and paste the layers and merge layers.
In this video I'm going to work on the next stem using the copy we made in the last video and change it. Every stem is different so i wanted to show you how easy it is to do that. Using the scatter tool and paint in the new shape with a pink color. I also will be adding detail with a small brush. I going to duplicate the layer and transform it.
Adding a new layer in this video for the sweet pea flower. I will be saving my colors from the buds. Then I will shut off all the layers and I will be painting on a white canvas. The flower will be painted on three layers. I will be using the pencil brush and drawing in simple shapes.
In this video I'll be painting in the detail of the flower. I'll be using the dodge/burn tool, spray brush and adding veins in the flower with a small pencil. After that I will use the blur tool to soften the veins. Then I'm going to merge the layers of the flowers its on one layer. Then I will duplicate the flower so we have three.
In this video I will be transforming the sweet pea flowers on different layers.
I'm going to move and merge some of the layers. Then I'm going to transform the layers and move scale and rotate. Then I'm going to merge down the layers.
In this video I'm going to bring my painting into another painting that I've created earlier. I'll copy the painting and then will show you how to paste it in the next painting. Once its in the new painting I will transform and move scale and rotate it to fix into the vase of the new painting. I will be moving the layer so it is in the vase. I thought I would show you how to combine two painting. You will learn how to save and export your painting to photos or send it by email.
