Shiny Stuff

Teapot with Two Oranges
iPad Painting, Size Variable

 

I am a magpie of a sort. I like shiny things. I love working with highly reflective surfaces. It’s a fascinating process translating what I see to the flat drawing support. The iPad is very suitable for the task. I can select brushes with soft edges and adjust the degree of opacity which makes it the perfect tool. But, I am still very much a traditional materials girl. I get lost in the process and forget about the layers which can be manipulated. There are no layers like this with canvas and paint.
