digital art gets small with sketchbook mobile

My android phone is replacing my graphic pad as my canvas of choice.  I'm fascinated with the speed that comes from working with my finger on a very small screen and the ability to integrate images and photographs easily.  My primary tool is Sketchbook Mobile by AutoDesk because (1) it has a zillion brush styles with adjustable sizes and transparency, and (2) it lets you work on Photoshop type layers that can be easily resized. 

The painting on this card started with a simple face drawing that gradually morphed over several days and dozens of fused drawing layers (including a final dimmed photograph of me in my bathroom mirror) into an abstract that feels eeirily earthy

Rugged Abstract: Digital Painting by Marina Flournoy

I completed the work using Photoshop on my desktop. Working small means small images, so I had to resample up to 300 pixels for good print resolution. But, other than that and a brightness/contrast adjustment, this is all phone art.
