Very interesting interview with David Hockney discussing ‘drawing on glass’, in which he means iPads. He also demonstrates his passion for portraiture art as opposed to photography and not least, he mentions the Clintons, Churchill, Hilter and smoking. Quite a lot covered in this 2 minute clip by Guardian Australia at his current exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. Take a look…
We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look a new watercolour app – Paint Logue and compares it to some of the other current popular watercolour apps. Take it away Jerry…(foreword by Joanne Carter).
"How many hammers do you need? Given my ability to bend any nail, I definitely need a claw hammer. I’ve got a pipe wrench with a hammer head on the back, for those frustrating moments when the pipe fitting WON’T BUDGE. But since I’m not pounding dents into or out of metal, I have no real need for a ball-peen hammer. (Besides the fact that I love the phrase “ball peen hammer”. It’s fun! Say it with me: Ball Peen Hammer.)
Why am I talking about hammers when I should be talking about iPhoneography apps? It just came to mind when I saw that another watercolour app was available for free this past weekend. It’s called Paint Logue (yes, there is a space in the middle – it’s not Paintlogue) and it is by a company called Nine Curves. It was first released in September, but it’s already on release 3.1.
At first I wasn’t even going to bother downloading it, because watercolour effects are easily obtainable in many, many apps. To use my analogy, who needs another hammer? It would have to be very special, and Paint Logue is not a special hammer. So rather than go into depth with an app that isn’t that deep, I think I’ll compare it to other watercolour effects. In addition to Paint Logue, I’ll look at Waterlogue, Becasso, Aquarella, and my go-to app, iColorama.
I’ll be using this bicycle image that I captured last week at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom".
We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look at the newly updated TouchRetouch app. Take it away Jerry…(foreword by Joanne Carter).
“Back in January 2013 I covered TouchRetouch by AdvaSoft. It was an invaluable app then, with its ability to replace areas of your image with a fill based on the surrounding pixels. Recently they released an update that added new tools and changed the user interface, so I thought I’d show it to you all over again”.
We are delighted to publish Jerry Jobe’s latest mobile photography/art tutorial for our viewing pleasure. This time Jobe takes a look two apps, Graffiti Me and Fotofiffi. Take it away Jerry…(foreword by Joanne Carter).
"There are thousands of photography/art apps on the App Store, and some of them are extreme specialised. That’s the case with the two apps I’ll be covering this time: Graffiti Me by Bluebear Technologies Ltd and Fotoffiti by amioli. Each take your image, run a Threshold filter on it, and apply it to a wall as if you’ve stenciled it there. Each allow you to add extra paint and text. Each also run on both the iPhone and the iPad, but limit the iPad version to portrait orientation. And each will cost you about a dollar, if you don’t get them free on their frequent promotions.
Let’s start with a look at Graffiti Me".

“Once again, a new release of iColorama adds art tools that further the reach of this feature-packed art app. The latest release brings the Clone Brush, Light leak textures, and a few other tweaks. I’m going to be concentrating on the Clone Brush in this tutorial.
Why use a clone brush? You may, quite frankly, not need it in your artwork. But I’d like to show you some ideas for how to use them that you may want to incorporate into your artwork or just play around with. Here’s a result of play with the Clone Brush that made a nice, vibrant appstract”.
