The iPad is an incredible tool, but how can an artist unlock its exciting and creative potential? This book explains, in simple terms, all the processes and techniques it offers. For the novice, it gives a step-by-step guide to the tools and screen, and introduces concepts progressively as you expand your skills. For those with more experience, it suggests advanced ideas, and provides inspiration to try new techniques and develop your artistic journey.


  • Guide to the artistic toolbox - using effects such as drawing with pencil, painting in oils, working with watercolour, using felt tip pens and wax crayons, and much more - all on your lap without fuss or mess
  • Clear graded exercises explain how to make pictures using the ArtRage app, starting with simple mark-making and graduating to more complicated projects with layers and imported photographs
  • Chapters cover taking and editing photographs, printing your images on a domestic printer, framing and selling your prints
  • Step-by-step examples demonstrate a range of fine art genres including portrait, landscape, flowers, still-life and abstract compositions
  • Emphasis is given to artistic techniques that can be applied to different painting apps and other software

" The literature has previously tended to concentrate on the technology rather than the act of creation and this has been its main weakness. It is therefore a relief to report that this rather excellent book redresses that balance. It is about making works of art in a digital medium rather than simply fiddling with electronics. "

" I'm amazed by how much is packed into 144 pages here. It's comprehensive, very much art-based and has the nice mix that Crowood provides of text, illustrations, demonstrations and projects. "
