Birdie Enhanced

I recently posted a few digital sketches that I made using Procreate. Sharon Mann atΒ Make Art…Magic Happens,Β mentioned that she likes to import her artwork into Procreate and enhance it with cool effects. I knew I just had to give that a try.Β  I’m always inspired by Sharon’s beautiful and creative artwork. πŸ’—

Happy Thursday, friends! 😊

I decided that a recent sketch of my birdie in a teacup would be fun to play with.

and then after a few enhancements…

New tail feathers and a sweet little hair accessory added.

Lots of happy color and a fun background added as well.

Wow, what a difference that makes!

Thank you for the inspiration and encouragement, Sharon!Β  I’m having so much fun learning and playing with Procreate.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.Β  UntilΒ next time, share a smile and shine on!

Sunday – Digital sketchbook

I’ve been having fun playing with Procreate on my iPad. I am so impressed with this app and all of the possibilities. I’ve been watching online videos trying to learn how to create digital art. I have a few pieces to share with you today.

Happy Sunday, friends! 😊Winter pine - digital art

A quick tree that I sketched without using my new apple pencil.

For this floral sketch, I used layers to build up the sketch. It was fun playing with a bright color palette. With time I hope to do a better job layering and blending.

Kingfisher on a branch. I’m starting to get a feel for how much pressure to use with the pencil to achieve the line thickness I desire.

It will be so easy now to create art while I am traveling. Hopefully Procreate will help me improve my sketching skills this year as well. One thing is for sure, I am having a blast playing with Procreate!

I hope you are inspired to create art and do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on the creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
