Primitive And Clunky

9 Jul

Went for a longish walk this afternoon in the continuing heatwave and we kept up a cracking pace and I didn’t have time to do a scribble in my sketchbook.  So I grabbed my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 when I was sitting down chilling out with a cup of iced green tea (oooh get me) with my tired old feet up on the pouffe and I thought “Oh go on then, scribble these.” I try to do a scribble every day. It’s not great art but it’s practice and it’s keeping me physically and mentally in tune with my drawing skills. I use a free Markers app which is quite primitive and clunky, but frankly I don’t have the time or inclination to research,  buy and start using a new, more expansive app.

A Different Way

8 Jul

I’ve started to use my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Tablet again for drawing,  with a free Markers app, and I’m approaching it in a different way,  being much more experimental than before. I haven’t drawn with it for a couple of years and I am being freer with it. I built up this portrait head in many layers, using mostly my fingers with some fine stylus work around the facial features. I think I am taking more risks with it because there’s no expense involved,  if it doesn’t work out I can delete it and start again. 

A New Male Nude

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop this evening. Tonight we worked with a male model who, although thin, has very good muscle definition. I used my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with the free Markers app, but it’s a bit on the small side for a full body study so I focused on the legs, which had some interesting foreshortening.

Jabbing My Finger

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop with a couple of studies of heads. Our model is a retiree and she’s been modelling for us for some years. I love drawing the faces of elders, so interesting and so much life written across them. I used my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with the free Markers app. There is a slideshow below with the different stages of the drawing.

I mostly use the stylus to draw but tonight I used my finger as well, jabbing it onto the screen, a strangely satisfying feeling.

A Speedy Head

I has a few minutes left at the end of life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop last week so I scribbled the model’s head very quickly on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with the free Markers app.

A Night At Life Drawing

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop, the regular Thursday night group and I am shattered, so just a quick blog from me. I focussed on the model’s face, drawing with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8, using a free Markers app. I saved the drawing regularly and put it into the slideshow below to demonstrate the different stages of the drawing.

A Head. Just A Head.

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. I concentrated on portraiture this week. I used my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with a free Markers app to draw our model. I like working with older models as the faces have more texture and contours which, to be honest, is easier.

Return To Life

I’ve been so busy with the series of silkscreen prints over the past few weeks that I haven’t been to life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop for ages. So back to normal this evening and I did this head study using my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with the free Markers app.

I saved the drawing frequently so that I could put together a slideshow of the different stages of development. I got really scribbly.

Bird In A Huff

I had a sneaky digital scribble this evening, looking at Richard the Bird through the bars of his cage as he glared malevolently back at me with his yellow beady eye. He was having a hissy fit because I gave him a fresh raspberry, foraged at the local supermarket, but he wanted Husb, the parrot god, to give it to him. I am just not good enough. So he snatched the raspberry from my hand and threw it out of his cage in contempt! He didn’t even taste it.

Not Enough Hours

Had one of those days where I was out of the house a lot but with no time to draw at all so here’s the last of the life drawings I did last week. I concentrated on the model’s head and upper body and used my Samsung Galaxy Tablet Note 8 with the free Markers app. Sometimes there are not enough hours in the day!
