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.

The art of Quilting is reaching across the world.

Kantha, Appliqué, embroidery and quilting have been in India since the 6th century. But now there is a movement into the quilting arts of the rest of the world, I have a vision of sharing my ideas on textile art using modern technology.

Mr Aditya Gupta is presenting this opportunity in Delhi to Indian participants from the 3rd to the 6th of March I will be teaching three of my own techniques to the ladies. Laurie Tigner will be teaching Quilting on the Handi Quilter. It’s a great honor.

How to use the iPad pro for your quilt patterns and illustrations using Adobe Sketch.

In January this year, my creative life changed when I purchased the new iPad pro.

I bought the largest screen and the largest memory iPad that I could. Then came the wonderful apple pencil. It really has taken me almost all of the year to work through the applications that work in my favor.

The main one I use is Adobe sketch.

You must plant creative seeds to harvest later

I wanted to do a drawing of all the things I’ve seen, touched, love and have experienced here in Antigua. Most of my quilt images originate from my photos… but then some from my imagination.

So what better to do than to attempt to combine all of those things.

This is drawn on the iPad using colored pencils. The excitement of drawing in the iPad is that I can just press a button and rub out the parts I don’t like.

It’s so nice being home. I have another day of teaching today with a group of ladies who honour me with their presence. I’m always humbled and I still have the feeling of amazement that someone actually waits in anticipation, prepares and packs their supplies to come to one of my classes. When those ladies arrive laden with their machines and large overflowing bags of fabric, notions and the latest equipment I do a little mental dance.
