  1. I’m really enjoying watching you experiment with your phone drawings. Thanks for sharing them. Thinking about buying a stylus and giving it a go. Are you using Artrage or something else?

Sketchbook mobile is like more drawing with markers on whiteboard, but it’s really fast and you can make the marks more or less opaque to let color below show through. Artrage has brushes that mimic painting wet into wet, or you can use a palette knife to blend. Also more oil pastel-like choices and canvas/paper textures to paint on. It reacts a little slower and can fall behind if you’re scribbling–suits a slower approach. Neither is expensive, a couple of bucks, so it’s a cheap experiment.

Glass reflection just wipes out your ability to select colors and see what you’re doing. Inside it’s amazingly convenient, a sketchbook in your pocket with no cleanup required…
