iPad, Water, Computer Art

Since iPad came into existence, people have made effort to incorporate that device into art-making, with various degree of success.

New York Times Magazine reported recently on such effort by the British painter David Hockney using iPhone’s Brushes app, among others:

I also found the video below on using iPad to make a portrait.

Other unusual art formats include "water painting", computer simulation (an old trick by now?) and light projections:
