wauw, I could never do this :) I don't see things like you do, that's for sure :)
I kept thinking, why is she drawing that line, what is that for, wat colour is it going to be in the end???? Hihi, I'm definitely not calm enough yet ;)

Wow, Karen!!! :ieks: :f:

Just gorgeous -- and like Barbara, I'm just amazed (and fascinated) to watch you construct it -- that's amazingly cool. My brain just doesn't work that way!

This is more my speed (Karen's already seen this):

You're fabulous, Karen!

Oh, you had to send me back there, didn't you? I can't help myself...it's too much fun throwing paint around! Not to mention it's a really brilliant bit of code, isn't it??

And thank you about the horse! It's funny, but that playback really makes it look all deliberate, when in fact I wasn't really all that sure it would turn out to be anything. I got tired of making hair though...should have spent a little more time on the forelock!

Thank you!

I´m just checking how to use the art-pad..it´s hard to get lines ok with the pencil..My dad thinks it´s marvellous for planning akvarell-paintings anyway (so cool, that he and I are using the internet to paint together..my dad lives in Germany, 1000 km away..)
So, don´t take my first trials too serious :pale: :colors:

Yours is great, I´m completly unable to draw horses..
Once again..Thanks!

Oh, they are beautiful!!! I really like the looseness of it and the fact that it is very difficult to be very precise. And watching the process happen if fascinating!

I had to google "akvarell"...watercolor! Your father and you both paint?

I used to paint very realistic and used oil paints...now I force myself to paint less exact and use acrylics. I adore the Impressionists...especially Van Gogh.

:applause: :applause:

The patterns are funny too..got my eyes spinning :ieks: .
I´m not painting at all (but maybe I will start..I have so much fun with this program), my dad is an architect and painting watercolors (sorry for the swedish(!!) word) since he stopped working. So, when I´ve done a picture, I send it to him to get his comments (he likes that) and afterwards he is improving the painting and sending it back. The little red prince for example is never in the right place and the flower was to much centered..
If you think, that you are painting for realistic this program might be the right thing. Do you have thought about printing and then improving with acrylics?

I do use the computer to plan out a painting. I use Photoshop. My problem is finding time to paint! Between work and horses, I don't seem to have the free time to paint.

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=523&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

Toward the bottom of the page is something I would like to do. I should post the larger version. The one there is just a portion of the image...but in Photoshop, you can also do something like finger painting....you can push color around and it allowed me to do many of the swirls in this image.

So yes, I think that web page would be a great way to plan out a painting, then print it, and paint it for real (or make improvements...yes!).

Running against open doors (that´s what we say in german..). You are able to work with Photoshop :thumright: , that´s far from what I can do with the computer (my photografer-husband really wants me to learn it, but..but..but). Therefor I was so pleased with this easy artpad..
You are really doing fine airedales and horses!! Love them..specially the starry-night one..
Do you have seen those? http://artpad.art.com/gallery/?kchu83kucf8 and more starry nights http://artpad.art.com/gallery/

This topic and all the artworks are so wonderful to see! :)

Being the impatient person that I am, I press 'see the final result' immediately in every link that was posted here, 8) but it in itself is really fascinating to have to wait for a couple of seconds with the white screen for your nose, before the painting is fully loaded. You absolutely have no idea what's going to follow, and because you've been staring at the blank canvas for a couple of seconds before, gives the artwork that then appears just that little extra impact; it really is a colour explosion. :)

What a great program, and what a wonderful and colorful works of art you've all posted already!
