The iPad is an incredible tool, and this guide will help any artist unlock its exciting and creative potential

This book explains, in simple terms, all the processes and techniques the iPad 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. It also acts as a guide to the artistic toolbox—using effects such as drawing with pencil, painting in oils, working with watercolor, using felt tip pens and wax crayons—all on your lap without fuss and mess. Exercises explain how to make pictures using the ArtRage app, and it also covers taking and editing photographs, printing your images on a domestic printer, framing, and selling your prints. The step-by-step examples demonstrate a range of fine art genres, including portrait, landscape, flowers, still-life, and abstract composition. Emphasis is given to artistic techniques that can be applied to different painting apps and other software.
