Hats & Feathers


I was very critical of iPad drawings, you should have heard me talking after Hockney’s exhibition. But now that I’ve had a chance to experience the potential, I must say it’s pretty cool! I would not go as far as saying that it can ever replace the feeling of pastels on paper or paint on canvas, but it definitely has its advantages. For starters, the effects are pretty realistic, in this drawing I have used paint and pastels, shame you can’t really mix the colours together, but I’m sure that day is not too far. The other great thing is being able to ‘undo’ your last few moves, a very digital concept for sure, but handy nonetheless. Although I am not entirely sold to the idea of digital painting, I can definitely play with it, and I have really enjoyed coming up with this illustration.
Tomorrow I’m going to learn some real canvas stretching from a real painter, so more news to come!
