Here’s a digital drawing of a strange little fella. S/he will be appearing on Twitter tomorrow on #MacroinvertebrateMonday. Check it out 😀
Liek many artists, I supplement my income through teaching part-time. One thing that’s become very obvious over the years is that so many people genuinely have no idea how long it takes to make an artwork. There’s a popular image that artists sit down (SIT? I wish!) and go “bish, bash, bosh” and behold –Continue reading “Bish Bash Bosh!”
Carrying on with my digital drawing of three weird squashes, I started adding some shadows and details using my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and a free Markers app. One of the advantages to digital drawing is that you can hit the SAVE button frequently and get a record of the drawing as it develops….
I’m carrying on with the digital drawing of my three wacky squashes I started yesteday. It’s a primitive drawing package, but it’s fine for what I want it for, quick little studies. I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a free Markers app.
In the beginning …. is the sketch. I have been given three wacky squashes and I’m going to have a go at a still life; not sure what technique yet – watercolour, collage? But first of all, some sketching to really study the weird vegetables and understand how they’re made up. I’m using my SamsungContinue reading “In The Beginning…”
I drew this head at the life drawing group at Swansea Print Workshop a couple of evenings ago. I used my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and loaded a photo of some marbling I’d done as the background to the drawing. I used the free Markers app. I wanted to break away from detailed ‘traditional’ drawingContinue reading “Finger Blobs”
I’m often asked why I do life drawing. Partly it’s because the portrayal of the human form in European art dates back around 40,000 years to cave paintings; partly because I love to study anatomy, it’s complex and I love it; and partly because I was trained in the discipline of regular drawing exercise, whichContinue reading “Why Life Drawing?”
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’sContinue reading “A Renaissance 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 aContinue reading “Cat Face – my drawing on video”
Here’s the other drawing I did at the life drawing session at Swansea Print Workshop last night. I did something a bit different this week and uploaded a copy of a cyanotype I did some time ago (it’s in the permanent collection of A Book About Death, Wales) and drew over it. I’ve been usingContinue reading “Big And Free?”
