I have been wanting to explore a digital stylus with my ipad or a while. I love to make art… everywhere! But sometimes it’s too dark to see colours properly and not socially acceptable to haul out water and a tin of paints and take over every available surface. But working on an ipad would be perfect.
I tried the technology early on, and it wasn’t that great, so I forgot about it. UNTIL! I spent time with Ivy Newport when I was in Portland. And saw what she creates on her ipad – lovely! She has teamed up with Robin Laws to create an online class about it, and I am using that to get me over the line and using the ipad as an art tool.
So in preparation I have ordered this Stylus ( seriously, how cute is it? The reviews are stellar too, so I’m looking forward to flourishing this!):
I got the walnut colour!

and this is the stylus Ivy and Robin recommended ( click on the image)
and i just ordered this book to warm up for the class:
And look forward to trying something new!

Spending time with artists is so fulfilling. You have to make it happen, and each time I do, I am so happy I did! I get to meet wonderful people and learn new things.
How lovely is this welcome sign Ivy created for Diana and I ? Made me fall in love with her even more! We spent the day in her studio working on a mini plaster and encaustic masterpiece. Fun!
Ivy Newport was very proud of her extra fluffy Latte – and it was super delicious!
And here is the delightful Robin Laws!
But I was distracted by Ivy’s collection of antlers…. And all her art! And on to the main event!
Even the palettes were pretty!
and a fine time was had at lunch by the lake!
I love my art friends! Thank you to Diana Rast, Ivy Newport and Robin Laws for a fabulous day!
