Creating a design board.

This is a small drawing I created in Adobe Draw on the iPad Pro as we traveled in the bus yesterday. It’s Naive to say the least, but it’s what I saw in a pure sort of way. Components in the image could be used as stand alone patterns for fabric. The stripes, the trees…

Let’s draw on the iPad.

I did a small drawing and added it in a cartoon to my FB page, and once again, I received hundreds of requests for a class.I’ve filmed a small introduction to see if anyone is interested in learning the wonders of drawing in the iPad.There are lots of classes you can do, and I’ve sampled…

Creating the fabric image.

It’s been a rally busy day today, class with 27 ladies and then socialising afterwards…. however I had time to finish a little drawing. The flower has turned into a tea cup. Originally I saved the first line drawing by saving it into my photos on the iPad Pro, that way I can add to…

Creative thoughts

It’s been an amazing weekend and with presentations to a huge crowd now under my belt I can concentrate on working on a few more drawings. This is a bit fu fu…..but it’s an idea I’m playing with and it wouldn’t be the finished drawing… I just need to do a number of things and…

The flower.

This is just an idea… I’m not 100% happy with it… but it has potential. I don’t have time to add more images it’s going to be a hectic week… but I would love to see some of you try the technique.

Where do I go from here?

Now to work on the design ideas and I will tell you that sometimes I get an idea and I have to work on it instantly…. yes, right there and then. Sometimes if I’m out an about, I work it through my head, often to the annoyance of my companions. But today, because I’m under pressure to share with you all….. I’m a bit stuck.

Spaghetti for Breakfast.

  One of the things about travel… specially in the USA is that I can make one purchased meal last for three meals. Lunch at Olive Garden yesterday provided dinner and breakfast this morning. Yes, spaghetti for breakfast this morning. I stay in hotels for a large part of the year and I like to…

How I use my iPad pro for illustration purposes.

I have an iPad Pro and I use it in a number of ways for my art, designs and the planning of my Designs.
I’m going to show you how I used it for some of the illustrations for my Bayeux Project.
I photocopied the image I wanted to reproduce.
This is a screen shot of the process.
I use Adobe sketch, an iPad and an iPhone application.
On opening the application you will find two small squares on the left hand side. One has sketch layer written on it, the other has background.
