Foliage Drawings, and About a Recent Workshop

Drawing of plant

I began this work on paper, using a black fineliner “Artline” pen (brushed over it with water) – which has long been a favourite drawing tool. I scanned it into the iPad using the Scanner Pro app. Then hand drew some colour in Procreate, using the  turpentine paint, and also used a little of the ink bleed pen. You can see the beginnings in the first pic below.

The (Tayasui) Sketches app has more features since I used it a couple of years back. The watercolour and ink pen are quite impressive!

Recently I gave a Workshop in our local Community House. It went really well. It was something I hoped to do, after the really good response I had to my iPad art display in the Community House last year. Once again, forgot to take some pics! Sorry about that. 🙂 But there’ll be a next time.

Hopefully all going well I’ll have another workshop in September. In this one, I’ll have on the materials list two art apps that are also available on Android tablets, the “Tayasui Sketches” app, and “Autodesk SketchBook”. The Workshop is titled,” Traditional Drawing, on Paper and iPad, or Android Tablet”.

Unfortunately, there are a few brilliant art apps that are as yet not available on Android tablets – and not sure if they will be there in the future. Nevertheless, these two mentioned above are really quite good. It’s great to see people excited to learn about drawing, as well as drawing and painting on a touch screen. Over at portfoliolongo.com  you can read about Paul J. Longo’s venture into helping others learn about drawing and painting in art app media. There’s also plenty of his wonderful iPad art to look at, and his clever and witty words to read!

Below is the advert I had for my recent Workshop.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
