This is a continuation of last week’s post about drawing on your phone.
Initially I saw phone drawing as an option for when you want to do a drawing but don’t happen to have the pen and paper to hand. Better to practice something rather than nothing and not let the opportunity pass by.
I mentioned that I generally enforce rules upon myself to ensure the drawing experience is as authentic as possible.
Having said that, it’s also fun to have a play around with some of the effects afforded by the expertise of the app’s programmer. Just to let your hair down, have a bit of fun. Have a go with the fancy paint brush tools, as long as you don’t then convince yourself you can paint – nothing will beat real world practice with real world messy tools 😆
This one was drawn from a bench in a London park.
Copying a on a hotel wall.
Copied from an art book I think – my braincells have faded since 😕
Quick 10 min mountain sketch.
This one took a few sessions, here’s the build up stages.
I guess the process is similar with a real painting, build up the main shapes…
…add details and delete a tree or two, working with the composition, those clouds took foreeeeever…
…decided she needed a bit of company to enjoy the view…
…and that’s that. Considering that was drawn on a screen smaller than the palm of my hand it’s obvious that there’s a lot of zooming in and out.
