Here’s the second of my experiments with (slightly) less linear drawings, from yesterday’s ride home.
The ability to overlay washes of colour in Brushes is one of the most powerful aspects of the app, I think. It’s a shame these sketches are always done too quickly to really make use of it. (Hockney is obviously the go-to guy on that.) But I got a bit of it going on here, and it’s come out okay.
There’s been a bit of a hiatus on these – I went to Bulgaria on a school skiing trip with my son, and he pretty much monopolised the iPad (Asphalt 6), so no chance to draw people on the plane, minibus, etc. Since then I’ve just been incredibly busy with work, and not doing much travelling. So not many brushes with any strangers.
Anyway, that changed yesterday, and I had a bit of an experiment (again) at getting away from straightforward line drawing.
This lady (yes, lady), with her near-spherical head, sat nice and still and I thought I’d try to get her with, literally, some broad brush strokes. It came out better than some previous experiments, anyway. There’s another one coming a bit later.
