The Weekdays is a series of NFT digital artworks by Ales Lyalush, done by finger alone.
The work is drawn on an iPad.
Since 2014 I’ve been interested in digital art and I was surprised to find a lot of advantages in this direction, before that I worked in traditional painting and drawing techniques – canvas/oil, tempera, watercolor, charcoal pencil and I have something to compare it with.
Working on the iPad Pro, allows me to more accurately implement my ideas.
And as an example of these works – you can probably do them using analog painting techniques. But digital painting shortens the time from idea to realization and there’s more subtle work with line and colour! I feel digital painting has great potential for the future!
iPad – like an easel,
Procreate as a canvas.
