Apps for Art: Brushes

Welcome to my blog! In this post I will be going over one of the apps I use.

This is part two of my apps for art series. Today I will be going over Brushes for iPad. Brushes is the third app I mastered on iPad after ArtRage. Brushes is an old favorite of mine because of it’s simplicity and time lapse videos. When you create a painting in the program the app records the entire process. This feature has been instrumental in educating my students and potential buyers. iPad Art is still an emerging medium and people for the most part do not understand how it works. The videos help a great deal.
Furthermore my first two freelance assignments were done using Brushes. The client requested specifically that I use the recording feature to animate eight commercials for an advertising campaign.
