Winter Cardinal by ArtofJeffHebert Winter Cardinal by ArtofJeffHebert
I was commissioned by my office to paint something for our Administrative Assistant for Christmas. It just so happens she had a lovely story about Cardinals and how much meaning they hold to her. The timing couldn't have been more perfect! I did this on my iPad over the course of about 8 lunches hoping she wouldn't peek in before it was done.

Wonderful stock photo used for reference: [link]

Do you use a stylus for drawing or your fingers?

Great question! I tend to use a bit of both. At the begining I use my finger as I lay down the color and general shape. As I start to use smaller brushes I switch over to a stylus.

That is interesting. And what is your experience so far with painting on iPad?
