One way to start a painting with Brushes is to open an image that’s already stored in your iPod’s Photos. That’s how I started this one. I then filled the image with a transparent white so that it looked like a tracing paper image. You can still see part of the image in the paper that he is holding. I first drew a line drawing of Dad and indicated that background shapes. Then I painted in the colors. I stopped at this point and didn’t add any more detail because I liked the look of the rough drawing.
Here’s the original image.
To arrive at the working image I zoomed in on the Touch and did a screen capture (by pressing the Home button and then the On/Off button). Then I opened Brushes and imported the saved image.
