Rembrandt, Durer, and Callot figures; street scenes, abstract nature formation photos - some of the subjects from virtual sketch session, 12/14/20
The host, Liz Popiel, has curated a set of images, (whether photos or art), for us to draw that session. They start with short times, 3 min.) ,set to a timer, and continue to longer ‘Poses’, c. 20 min, as if they were models posing. Participants hold up their work, if willing, between each image. This is all done over the Zoom platform.
These are my drawings from the session. I’ve been drawing these on the iPad mini using the iPencil. It’s handy and the black is black. But not really better or easier than physical media. It gives certain constraints to deal with, that I don’t see as worthwhile skills to be developing, the iPencil is a much better drawing tool than a ‘stylus’. There’s no really good solution yet. Technology just is not there yet. And most tablet users are not people who do lots of writing or drawing. So, I don’t have much faith this will be developed into a real useful working function.
I’ve been drawing these in ‘Notes’. I try to start a new strip perhaps every 4-5 images. If I were to cut these up into separate images, would they be about the same resolutions as if they had been
drawn as single images? Have yet to test that.
Many thanks to Liz for making this happen.
