Creating Art from Photos is Easy
I have a few favorite apps for painting my photos on iPad. With the new iPad Pro, I’m really looking forward to the Apple Pencil making this even more amazing!
My favorite app to start this process is Adobe Paint Can – especially since it’s FREE. I’ve recorded this video transforming an image into a painting. Final touches will be completed in another app. I’ll add more info on that soon.
No artistic skill required. No mess either. You can work on paintings anywhere, anytime.
iPad Photo Painting Tips
- Start with a large brush and gradually decrease brush size.
- Start with a very large brush with lots of texture to create an interesting background.
- If the brush size itself does not change, pinch to zoom in.
- Use smaller brushes for finer details, especially eyes and faces
- Vary textures for more interest – choose different brush types
- Vary opacity of brush to blend, especially when blending background
- Don’t crop – you can always crop later. It’s usually better to have some room around your subject, especially if you’re going to order a canvas gallery wrap (like from MPix)
