I have started drawing for pleasure again but using media that I never have before. Last week I treated myself to the Brushes app and a stylus for my iPad. The opportunity to draw whenever and wherever I choose without carting a moleskine and a pencil case full of pens and pencils was too good to pass up. Working in this way uses a completely different group of artistic muscles so, in some ways, it feels as though I'm learning anew. Here is one I made earlier.
Brushes comes with the added bonus of a time lapse video that shows the evolution of the end result, warts and all. I always found the creative process of others fascinating but this is the first time that I have captured my own. Sadly, I was unable to export the clip from my iPad to my PC but as soon as I work something out, I shall upload it here for you all to see.
There will always be a place in my heart for the traditional, the tried and the true but I think, for now, Brushes and I are going to have some fun.
