Posted on: August 5th, 2017 by roz

 

After working with Tate Britain, delivering iPad painting workshops alongside the Hockney exhibition, I was given the opportunity to share some work on their Instagram account.

I was one of three artists asked to produce work inspired by David Hockney's artwork.

iPad art course at Tate Britain

I'm running a 5 week digital painting course at Tate Britain to celebrate the works of David Hockney.

Create your own digital masterpiece inspired by Hockney’s iPad drawings

​Beyond his iconic oil paintings and photographic collages, in more recent years, David Hockney has also become known as the world’s foremost iPad painter. Using the iPad drawings from his upcoming retrospective as a jumping off point, this five-week course will explore the possibilites of digital painting techniques through the use of online applications such as Procreate. Taking inspiration from the David Hockney exhibition, participants are given the tools to create their own digital masterpieces for the Tate site.

One of my favourite features of the Procreate app is the ability to watch back your process. I'm first to admit that I don't plan my portraits clearly in advance and I don't stick to a specific style. I'm still searching for 'my' style.

This is the process video for my portrait "Sheridan" (2015). I'm sharing it because it shows me trying a few different styles and techniques, and shows me making lots of mistakes. You can learn so much watching other peoples process videos, but also from watching your own. It makes it easier to pinpoint when a portrait goes wrong, or what single brush stroke brings the whole piece together.
