I was wandering through my photo library yesterday and re-discovered some shots of horses from a few years ago...and I thought this one would be a perfect subject to try to paint in the new Procreate 4 app which just came out for the iPad.
This blue eyed horse is one of my favorites at Chickasaw State Park. I just LOVE his coloring, and of course his gorgeous eyes. :)
Procreate 4 did not disappoint! I added a texture from DailyTexture.Com as his background, and painted that as well as him. At the end, I added another texture on top to really enhance interest and give him the old masters look I so love! Here's a close up crop of the finished painting:
Another cool thing is Procreate makes these speed paint videos of the process. So I'm putting the video below in case you'd like to see it. I hope you enjoy Old Blue Eyes!
Each piece of art I create is an adventure. An adventure into me, my mood at the time, my thoughts and feelings... An adventure into nature... An adventure alongside wild birds and animals... An adventure into a variety of artistic processes. As a result, my entire life is one big adventure, and I love it!
I use Backblaze for online cloud storage -- which I highly recommend to have a safe backup of all your photos, textures, and finished art! --Jai
