Evening sketching 

Posted on: May 18th, 2017 by roz

 

It's been far too long since my last painting. This evening I managed to spend an hour playing with the Windows 10 app version of Sketchbook Pro on the Surface Pro 4. As a subscriber to the app, I get the full selection of brushes, which you are able to tweak. Through these settings I have managed to create an eraser which is the same shape  as my favorite brush; something I believe to be so important in achieving a painterly finish.

I look forward to spending more time on it.

​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.
