Sneaky iPad sketch

ipad Ted sofaBack to the iPad, for an impulsive evening sketch of my son, reading on the sofa in his dressing gown. It’s not often he stays in one place long enough for me to capture a picture of any sort. I pretended I was doing something different on the iPad, so he took no notice of me while I scribbled.

I am finding the immediacy of the iPad is very satisfying for this kind of snapshot, and it’s permitting me a rather carefree attitude which I find very difficult to replicate in paint. Perhaps it’s to do with drawing using just a finger, rather than a pencil or pen? Who knows, but do I like the liberating results it gives. I think I should do more of this…
