More finger sketching from the iPod. The major problem I see with drawing on an iPod or an iPhone is that it doesn’t work well in the sunshine. You can’t see the screen well enough to draw. Paper works better on a beach.
Drawn on my iPod with the Brushes app. This one’s an ocean from memory.
I’ve been having fun with my iPod Touch today. I got inspired to draw with the excellent Brushes app but my fingers are big fat and clumsy, so it required lots of zooming to make the view big enough so my painting wasn’t just a bunch of gigantic blobs. I drew the umbrella against a backdrop of foliage in my yard. The weather has been just as excellent as it should look in the picture.
I’ve learned that David Hockney, one of the greatest artists in the world, is drawing on his iPhone with the same application. His drawings are much more successful than mine, but it’s fun for anyone to draw with a finger!
Jorge Colombo draws this week’s New Yorker cover with an app for the iPhone called Brushes.
