Amazing for an iPhone. I've still got to get a stylus. Finger painting on my phone is really very clunky. Nice fluid lines on this Mr Pete.

copespeak, thank you! hi scotchy, and hi Shibui, it's always good to have your comments! ...

D Akey, I've evolved to a "desktop" iPhone (4) and a "mobile" iPhone (5) in my quest to produce monumental paintings on a small platform ... I think I wrote in a different place that with the iPad and the iPhone, you quickly learn these devices were not built around a stylus, as some small platforms now are ... I've gone through the Pogo and the Bamboo and others, including the Jot Touch, and find that for my style of painting, a stylus actually is not helpful, though I can see why you want to try one ... If you find one you like that I haven't mentioned, please let me know ...

ps: Hi Lima, you must have been posting as I was, thanks for the comment!

thanks Lindae and screenpainter ... when I use the iPhone for drawing, I have three or four layers going at once, and by "blinding" all but the layer I'm working on, I can have multiple views simultaneously in my mind, and a trace of what went wrong (or right) at each stage ... these layers compete until all but one drops out ... in the Madonna, I used the resident pencil set at two different widths and I varied the opacity until they harmonized ...
