If Van Gogh had an iPhone what would he do besides call Theo for a loan? What if he could bring a hand-held easel and canvas into the wheat fields and midnight cafes of France? He could paint "Starry Night" without candles taped to his head and "Sunflowers" on a rocking train. Poor Vincent spent his life covered in paint. Today, for the price of an app you can hone your creative skills and express you artistic vision without going broke or mad! And, with the tap of a finger, share that vision with the world! The inspiration and knowledge to do it are between the covers of this groundbreaking book, Mobile Digital Art - Using the iPad and iPhone as creative tools.
