Making bigger iPad drawings.

Manet painted Claude Monet (accompanied by his wife Camille) painting in his Studio Boat in the summer of 1874 at Gennevilliers.Drawing on my iPad outdoors in my molbile studio

Last month I published my second eBook called “iPad Drawings”. The eBook shows some works drawn across multiple iPad canvases (including the picture above), something I’ve been aiming to achieve since mid 2012. I made my first double canvas sketch outdoors using monochrome (pictured below).

In 2013 I finished my first triple iPad canvas drawing called Morning Mist, Reigate Priory Park, Surrey, England (pictured above). This was first show at an Apple store event in 2013.

The drawing at the top of this page is titled “Early Autumn” and is my most recent drawing made across three iPad canvases.

“The British portrait artist Lucian Freud once said ‘I find it difficult to paint people I don't know’. Like people, trees are individuals and places have their own character. I can’t draw places well that I don’t know, so I’ve been getting to know these landscapes [the woods in Reigate Priory Park, Surrey, England]. I call this place my ‘nemesis’ as I feel I’m yet to really do it justice.”  Extract from “iPad Drawings” and my experience of making landscape drawings.
