Life Drawing And Lemon Cake

19 Oct


Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. I drew with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet with the free Markers app. The pose was for an hour and I built up the drawing gradually. I saved every few seconds and I’m going to edit all the saved drawings together to make an animation, Husb is going to teach me how to edit on Adobe Premiere Pro. I made a sponge cake filled with lemon buttercream for the tea break. With proper butter of course. And fresh lemons.


A Renaissance Video

Husb has been turning my digital drawings into short videos, showing how the sketches develop from nothing to completion. I’ve been drawing on a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 using a free Markers app and Husb has used Adobe Premiere Pro to edit them. This is one I did from a drawing by Raphael. Sometimes it’s useful to to make some studies from great artists. It’s good practice and aspirational.

Cat Face – my drawing on video

Here’s a short video of my drawing of Sparta Puss, step by step. It’s a digital drawing done on a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a free Markers app. I saved the drawing frequently and then Husb edited it together on Adobe Premiere Pro with a free soundtrack from Purple Planet.

She was in a strop when I drew her and kept staring at me, which was great for sketching but I don’t know what I did to offend her. But that’s the story of my life.

A Visual Odyssey

I’ve edited all the sketchbook drawings from my Pakistan residency into a short film with Adobe Premiere Pro. I drew them consecutively as I journeyed through the country and I also recorded sounds as I went along on my phone, so I’ve added a soundtrack as well. Isn’t technology brilliant?

The drawings were made with Daler Rowney artists’ soft pastels into a Khadi handmade paper sketchbook, 6 inches square which I scanned into my PC. The sounds were recorded on a Samsung Galaxy S3 mini.
