This was one of the earlier digital paintings that I did on my Samsung Galaxy Note. Being new to this medium I was convinced that digital paintings had a big future. However, when I scoured around on the internet I was very surprised by the lack of content in digital paintings such as this. I put this down to the fact that not many people look at digital painting as a serious medium for any works of art. What is abundant in digital art tends to be folks who focus on fantasy, surrealism and intense graphics artwork which are commonly done in Photoshop and other software packages.

 

There is another group of people who do oil their creative skills on their smartphones and tablets and this group commonly use the finger. This is most likely due to the lack of a stylus supplied with the smartphone or tablet but there seems to be a growing interest in this form of painting. I have done a couple of paintings using the finger and it certainly has its own unique approach to painting but it does not offer the finer details of stylus painting. Nevertheless, its amazing what you can produce rapidly with your touch smartphone. Please refer to the finger painting in this website or go directly to the “Finger Painting” category on your right.

 

With this painting, I use the familiar method of painting in a layer style. For full details of how to complete this painting using Paintology on your smartphone or tablet, please go here. The important thing to remember whenever you undertake any painting is to not worry about any specific aspect of the drawing. Just build the painting layer after layer and then evaluate your painting only after you complete it and then decide what you can do better in your next painting. If you are just starting out, try to stick with simple subjects and you should definitely read the introduction in the Beginners Course. Don””””t worry if your painting is not up to par at the beginning, following my methodology will enable you to absorb the essential concepts of painting and drawing that will get you there faster than other methods.

 

Happy Painting!
