Gaze at amazing art drawn on a touch-screen tablet

If you still paint on canvas, you may want to glance at some of the gems artists at CES created on Sony touch-screen devices.

LAS VEGAS--We may never be able to replace the splendor of painting on a real canvas with store-bought pigments, but the supreme accuracy of a modern touch-screen computer can offer an artistic experience that would even make Dali's head spin.

Deep within the maze-like setup of Sony's booth at CES 2013, I sat down with artist April Wong as she painted a woman using the ArtRage drawing program on a Sony Vaio Duo 11 hybrid tablet. Stroke by stroke, a realistic image emerged from Wong's stylus, and I couldn't help but find myself surprised that the visage appearing on the tablet looked as good, if not better, than a real painting. No mess, either!

Nearby, an array of computers displayed the work of contemporary artist David Kassan, who, like Wong, spent the entire duration of the technology trade show drawing lifelike images on Sony touch-screen tablet computers. Check out more of their stellar creations in our gallery below.
