After focusing on landscape imagery for awhile I’m switching gears today and working more abstractly. Recently my sketching has gone digital when I invested in a new iPad Pro and started using the Procreate app. I guess it counts as more screen time but it’s proving useful in my process.
The sketchbook ideas used to be crucial in the process. At the moment that feels like an extra step. Composing a drawing on a (toned) canvas feels like sketchbooking only larger. But that can feel like an extra step too. I also like to jump right into applying the materials in a more sensual spontaneous manner and compose a painting on the fly.
