Here I am with a couple of hours of Somerset Art Weeks to go. I’m fairly pleased with visitor numbers and sales. I have not been idle in the slack times either. It’s been a brilliant opportunity – shut up with an ipad for company – to try out some e-drawing.
I went on a course a few weeks ago given by Alison Jacobs, a local artist who is Somerset’s answer to David Hockney, with an awesome mastery of drawing on an ipad.
We downloaded several apps and tried out techniques but I didn’t feel I’d really put what we learned into practice. And if you don’t keep using computer stuff you forget. Well, I do!
I took a photo of Carson my holiday dog, one of many taken over his Somerset holidays. He writes a dogblog on facebook when he’s staying in Moorlincgh, so I was spoilt for choice.
Then I messed around with 5 different apps, my finger and I stylus I bought, and dozens of different techniques. Here we go:
So – a work in progress! Might consider trying a graphic novel (comic ?) one of these years!
Only one hour to go now…
