First off I'd like to say Artrage is by far the best painting app out there, I have them all and this is far superior to the rest so congrats!
Anyway, what I'd like to see when I first start a painting is a palette of standard oils, i.e. cadmium yellow, titanium white, sienna etc. all the standard oils I can actually buy off the shelf in an art shop. These would be a great starting palette to every painting and would enhance the authentic oil painting experience even further.
You may even be able to do this already, maybe I haven't found them yet? I've never been great with computers!
Keep up the good work, you've done a great job.
workaround for standard oil paint palette???
'what I'd like to see when I first start a painting is a palette of standard oils, i.e. cadmium yellow, titanium white, sienna etc. all the standard oils I can actually buy off the shelf in an art shop.'
I haven't tried this yet, but it's on my list of things to do (and have been doing something similar with respect to varying tool settings and presets) -- mess around with the color palette until you find colors/values close to your desired starting palette elements and then save them as the first few samples in your samples folder - and do it in the order in which you put the real paints on your palette. Alternatively (or additionally) you could take a screen shot of the palette position for each desired classic color; then cut & paste the palette images onto a jpg document (in the desired order, even annotated if you wish) that could be pulled up as a reference when you start the next painting.
It's a pain in the rear, but I've been starting my recent iPad paintings with a burnt sienna underpainting, onto which I rub out highlights using a very soft, low pressure eraser, and then follow with paint colors on top at the values created during the monochromatic value study. I've only done 2 so far, but they're a good start toward a more painterly appoach. Will post them to the gallery so you can see them. (Note: I didn't take the time to fiddle my way to the perfect burnt sienna -- since most of the under-painting will be covered by the time the painting is done.)
