At some point in an artist's life, "how to paint" becomes less important than "what to paint."
Here's my latest project: Clip Art iBooks for artists - a series of inexpensive and beautiful photographic resource material made for iBooks.
|ROSES Book 1, 214 pages of roses by Judith Hope Brown.|
For a few years I've been using some of Judith Hope Brown's photographs for reference and discovered that she had a treasure trove of images!
She was willing to team up and we decided to publish clip art books for artists by specific categories to make it easier to find what is needed. iBooks seemed to be the ideal venue - photographs that are high resolution and backlit on an iPad screen are far superior to a print with a limited range of color and value.
|ROSES Book 3, 219 pages of roses by Judith Hope Brown|
All three volumes of clip art photographs of ROSES are shot in natural light and are packed with full page reference photos. They are copyright free for artists to use in their art.
There are about 200 full page photos in each book (more would be difficult to download). A traditional print book would probably cost more than the iPad or Mac requited to view it.
Click on the covers to download free samples and let me know what you think.
The whole collection is here. (More clip art books to come)
NOTE REQUIREMENTS: To view these iBooks, you must have an iPad with iBooks 3 or later and iOS 5.1 or later, or a Mac with iBooks 1.0 or later and OS X 10.9 or later.
Until the technology catches up in Kindle format (not full page, 16 shades of gray) these book are ONLY available on iBooks.
