iPad Nude Studies January 2019

The weather did not cooperate again this Wednesday and we had to cancel the life drawing session. Here are several iPad drawings that I’ve done from photographs instead. I’m still  trying to draw with the same technique that I use when actually using pastels on paper. Most of these are done using a larger “brush” to establish the overall shape of the figure and then using a smaller “brush” to add line work and details. This is often the way I work with actual pastels, that is, using broader strokes to start and then using the edge or tip of the pastel stick for detailing.

    1. Yes! Not only undo but resize and rearrange although I don’t actually use those capabilities very much. But it’s good to know that they are there. It gives one more courage to try things! Thanks for writing.

    1. Thank you for your generous comment. Not all of them are “quick” as indicated by the indicated times of each. The first group were done in approximately 5 minutes each. For some artists, that’s a long time. The usual life drawing session can begin with 1 or 2 minute “gesture” poses. I have some difficulty with doing that and like to end with a bit more finish to the sketch so I usually do 5 minutes instead. Thanks again for commenting.

    1. Thanks so much. I like to start with a general image of the pose with a larger “brush” in Procreate. Then I can freely and quickly do the line work with one of the “pencil brushes” as I indicated in the post above . I think that helps to keep the line work “lively”. Thanks again for writing and following the log. I really appreciate hearing from you.
