I am currently obsessed over a new app I’ve recently acquired, “iColorama”, and have been trying to figure it out now for quite some time. As you may remember me saying a while back, I’m heavily right-brained and these sorts of things never come that easy for me. And of course there is no user’s manual either (not that I’d read it anyway).
I learned about this app while reading an article (or two) about the technique that artist Sarah Jarrett uses to create her unique and imaginative iPhone portraits.
There is so much to this app -it’s amazing what a couple of dollars will buy these days…and I am discovering more and more as I play with it.
Today I decided to see if I could replicate painting with acrylics – I wanted to try and get that layered, glazed look and I like the results so far.
After finishing up in iColorama, I opened the image in Glaze and then in DistressedFX to see what other effects I could come up with.
I can’t emphasize enough how freeing it is to have so many art tools at your disposal whenever you have a free moment to ‘play’.
There is no longer any excuse for not taking a minute or two out of our busy days to make art.
And what a difference that can make.
