Yes! Adobe Ideas has become my new medium for exploring hand drawing. The Adobe Ideas app provides an opportunity to hand draw images or draw on photographs. You can then save these images to a file and send them by email. In the app store, search for Adobe Ideas and note you will need to purchase this app.
I am enjoying learning how to use my hand drawing skills on an iPad. At the same time, it is challenging because I results are not the quality that I would want. The best way for me to learn a new technique is to allow myself to draw multiple, quick sketches of the same subject. I will let go of the results and allow myself to celebrate learning how to use Adobe Ideas.
Flowers are one of my favorite subject and I am familiar with their shapes. This makes them a perfect subject for me to practice a new technique.
I focused on drawing lines, making shapes and adding a variety of value. To keep the process simple, I kept the color palette neutral. There is a warm grey, a cool grey, an an olive green and black.
These three images show the progress that I was able to make. I am glad to be flexible enough to try new drawing techniques and yet I know that I want to make much more progress!
