Painting with pixels

I recently attended a series of iPhone/iPad photography and editing workshops with digital artist, photographer and author Theresa Airey.

Among the many tips and techniques I learnt on the course was how to use “painterly” apps like Artista, Painteresque and Auto Painter. These are a lot of fun and make it easy to add a simple artistic effect (watercolour, oil, sketch, etc) but fine-tuning images to get the most out of the app takes time and practice and Theresa has this down to a fine art, if you’ll pardon the pun!

These are a handful of my first attempts with some of these apps.
