This is a quintessential Christmas scene - a charming cottage inviting us in through the trees across the snow covered path. Smoke is rising so the fire is lit and the twinkling windows assure us of a warm welcome when we get there! It is quite a complicated composition with many layers so was ideally suited to the modern medium of iPad art. I am often asked what exactly an iPad painting is. It is of course a painting like any other but with a different medium.Here's a step by step guide to "Cottage at Twilight".
You will notice that I have proceeded in the same way as I paint with watercolour so an oil painter or acrylic painter may have used a different approach. The painting app I use is called Drawcast. I find it very easy to work with because it is so uncomplicated and lets me concentrate on the painting rather than the technology involved.
