We have had an early and intense winter this year and it has disrupted many activities including our weekly life drawing sessions. We lucked out this week and were able to meet for drawing; no major storm and no heavy winds. I brought my iPad along to continue practicing drawing with it. As usual, the time constraints made me edgy while drawing but I was able to complete most of them in the allotted time. I did do some touching up after the session on a couple of the drawings just to make them presentable for this posting. I’ll indicate in the captions which ones I added time onto.
I’ve had one problem using the iPad and the Apple Pencil. The glass surface to the iPad is very smooth and rather unlike a paper surface so it feels a bit strange for drawing on. I put a matte screensaver on in hopes that it would give a bit of resistance to the surface and make it easier to draw. It does, to some extent, but it also takes away some of the clarity of the iPad’s image. I’ll leave the screensaver on for now and see if I can get used to it. Ultimately I’ll have to decide whether I want a better drawing surface or more clarity of the image.
