Two of my paintings have been selected to exhibit at the Paint by Pixels show at the Loft Gallery in Narrowsburg, New York.
“Paint By Pixels,” a group exhibit of digital paintings made on iPads and other tablets opens with a reception on Friday, August 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Delaware Arts Center’s Alliance Gallery in Narrowsburg, NY. The exhibit will be on view through September 6, 2014. This is exhibit is sponsored in part by Epson and ArtRage.
“We decided to have an iPad show, mainly, because it is a fun, immediate, and thoroughly democratic medium,” says Tom Bosket, the co-curator with Alexis Siroc of the “Paint by Pixels” exhibit.
Illustrators, artists, and graphic designers have started painting, drawing, and sketching without the need for art supplies, paper, and an easel. Several powerful painting and drawing apps—such as SketchBook Pro, ArtRage, Procreate 2, and Brushes—allow artists to create visual art on their tablets. Tablets also allow artists to “get messy” without any real mess, which is especially appealing to artists who are on the go.
The two portraits, Emma by mobile light (2013) and Palmer (2014) were both painted on a Microsoft Surface Pro using the free Windows8 Fresh Paint app.
