My project work earlier this year with the Josef Herman Art Foundation Cymru involved using iPads for drawing. I was interested in using the iPad again on the art walk I went on recently but on this occasion challenged myself to use a much broader “pencil”.
I had asked some of the children on the Josef Herman project to do this in order to emulate Herman’s style more closely. For myself, I thought that it might help me to find a way of working with the iPad that I felt was more suited to the characteristics of the implement.
However, I think I would have to do a lot more in this way to achieve a better degree of comfort with the iPad as a tool for drawing. As I will be returning it to its owner very soon, this is not likely to happen. It’s a good job that real paper and pencil / charcoal is lot cheaper!
