iPad experiments


These are some of my early experiments with drawing on the iPad using the Sketchbook app. Mostly unfinished pieces. There's an attempted Sargent and a Hals copy in there.
This device is an unproven tool for me. I would prefer a touch sensitive stylus and a larger format iPad.

Sargent copy (oil sketch)

I love John Singer Sargent's work in general (as do almost all realist artists), and in particular his oil sketches of bedouins and arab people. This one ("Man With A White Turban," 1891) can be found on the Harvard Art Museums site.
