A couple of my ‘virtual travel sketches’ of Durham England. #virtualsketchleicester #Durham (UK)
(Hosted by Pete Sketches, of #virtualsketchleicester.)
Several groups in Facebook have been hosting online travel sketch sessions. I’m not sure if it started with the pandemic - maybe some were already doing it. Not everyone can afford the real globetrotting, either in time or money. And not everyone wants to!
With this group, hosts put together a collection of photos and informative links for a location. They set up a gathering date for participants to meet on zoom to share work and meet. People also post their drawings/sketches/art to the group page.
I’ve done a couple of Durham England sketches. I think google pics were the ref pics.
I’m drawing these with ipencil in ipad. Horrid stuff to work with. I can’t understand why people like it so much. I like it’s strong blacks tho, and a certain convenience. It’s frequently trying to turn lines into arrows. And the surface is so slippery that there is not enough line control. I’ll be damned if I start using the ruler now...
