Digital Nausea

27 Nov

nov 2


Here’s another study from last night’s life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop. I have spent a lot of time using my Galaxy Samsung Note 8 tablet with a free Markers app at life drawing. It’s been my main drawing tool for a couple of years, but recently I got sick of it. I quite literally started to feel nauseous at the thought of doing any more drawing with it. I think it’s because I have to spend so much time on the computer anyway that I really needed a break. I dug out an A3 Daler Rowney sketchbook and some charcoal and graphite blocks and started to scribble away, feeling the drawing materials rubbing across the paper. So different to digital drawing, so real and responsive.

    “Real and responsive” has always been the reason I prefer actual art materials over electronic ones. Although computer tricks do help a lot in the composition department.

      Yes, I am getting tired of the artificial feel of the stylus.

    I can feel your “paper joy” 🙂

    I get it. Something so visceral about real paper and materials.
    Like good food
