iPad Flower Drawing

Practicing drawing with Adobe Ideas on the iPad.  Flowers are my favorite subject and I am familiar with their shapes and proportions.  These Black-eyed Susan’s are from my garden and are sitting on my work table.  I use several techniques when learning a new medium to assist with my success.  First, keeping it simple by drawing an image that is familiar.  Second, using a single hue and adding a variety of values.  This assists me from getting overwhelmed with too many color choices.  And finally, instead of erasing and redoing over and over, I let go of perfection and allow the image be done at 80%.  When I finish one drawing, I can move on and start another one.  Stay tuned for more to come!

    There is just something about this drawing that is appealing to me. I love the “feel” of the drawing. Maybe it’s the monochromatic color scheme, I don’t know. I like how the flower petals overlap the border.

      Interesting observation, I am glad that the image created a feeling for you. To have a viewer to have a feeling is great result. Thank you for letting me know.

    I am amazed at the quality of this I-Pad application drawing. It is so organic and mimics a hand rendered marker sketch. I would love to learn more about it. Is it hard to add detail and value? I suppose it might be easier to erase.

    Thanks for sharing!

      I like your idea of adding a iPad drawing lesson to the class this summer. Let me work on this and perhaps at the end of class individuals with iPads can stay and we can play around with this.
