Resting On My Knee

26 Aug


This is the eleventh of my “Up Yer Nose” series of digital drawings. I start by taking a digital photo of my victims …. er …. volunteers …. then I look at the photo on my phone, resting on my knee, while I draw freehand into my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 using a free Markers app. I don’t download the photo into the app and then draw on top. I tried that once, years ago, and it looks weird. It takes away my interpretation and my style and just looks fake. And it doesn’t really teach me anything or give me valid practice. Drawing from scratch takes a lot longer but it’s more satisfying and I prefer the result.

    I’m enjoying this series! Ties in nicely with my visit to Salt’s Mill to look at Hockney’s iphone/ipad work.

    I heard (probably an old joke), from a Welshman that it took Welsh people two weeks in the sun to turn white.
