One of the things I am enjoying most about using the iPad with Procreate app is the variety of artistic expression that is readily available. Playing with the numerous tools, colors and textures has been both exploratory and meditative. I have wanted to wander through the possibilities of abstraction and, using that as a basis, freely playing (doodling) with many of the elements available in Procreate, I have tried to “improvise” coherent and balanced compositions. They start from simple combinations of shapes or colors and, gradually pieced together, they evolve in a kind of collage, ending as something that makes some kind of sense to me. It’s a kind of personal magic. I find it interesting that there is both a meditative sense and an exhilarating creative burst in putting these compositions together. This “free-wheeling” approach has helped me to learn some of the tools and techniques of using Procreate as well as enabling me to create something new.
