Portrait of my son Theo using iPad app Brushes

This afternoon I managed to get my son Theo to sit for a portrait to test the iPad app 'Brushes' for about an hour and a half - with a break in the middle.

Thanks to Glenn Armstrong of Coup d'Archet for permission to use the music - Johanna Martzy playing Milhaud - Le Printemps

Thanks Gillian - it was very easy to edit - I just whacked it into iMovie - though I probably could improve the close-ups, now that I know a bit more about doing that - next time, eh?

not sure which is the greater acheivement.

That you have managed to master the art of I pad drawing or that you managed to get Theo to sit still for 90 mins!

Hello Germán - Velazquez would probably say I should work harder :)

Hi, Mik, thank you for sending me the link to your AMAZING work!...I am surprised of the technolodgy, and your skills, or both:) I do like the portrait, it is very fresh, spontaneous and shows a character behind the face...

Thanks Juno, Max and Valerie!

@Max - yes you can produce a high resolution print from the file this process creates. I've not experimented much with the print side yet, but will do soon - towards an exhibition in Weimar, Germany in the autumn (fall).

@Valerie - your tweet has certainly made a difference to people looking at this - thank you so much!

@ Juno - you too :)

Hi Mik,

Love the portrait! Beautifully done!

I think I'll tweet it.

Glad you had a good time in NYC (though I do believe there are a number of good bars there...).

Beautiful finish there Mik, what a talented young man you are. Hey so this process then produces a paper image or something? I am ignorant on the subject, are you painting with an external tool? You really have taken wonderful advantage of the new app.
