My Kestrel is complete!
He was forged with an iPad app called Paper, which I love because it taunts me with a small but splendidly formed range of brushes. Drawing for me is part puzzle solving, so it’s inspiring to be given a specific set of tools to try and outwit.
I copied from this photo. You can see I’ve used some artistic license/got the proportions wrong.
For the Paper literate; I made this by layering increasingly light pencil strokes on top of a wash, then improvising haphazardly when that didn’t work.
It was made on an iPad Mini with my stubby working-class fingers.
This is atypical of my work and will probably remain so. It’s great to know that my realism neurons still fire, but I don’t know if I’m comfortable producing the kind of work that Alan Titchmarsh might put on his wall.
