Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days
I’ve never really been into computer drawing. I like the feel of pen on paper, the pushing and pulling of paints. Using a stylus pen on a tablet does not feel smooth. That is not to say I wouldn’t enjoy it with a little practice. I just haven’t allowed myself the chance.
So when the boyfriend brought home his Microsoft Surface Pro and offered to let me draw on it, I had my reservations. But the pen moved smoothly over the screen. It was so much more natural than what I had used in the past and I sat for a long time drawing on the new device. I feel like it is an especially great tool for quick sketches, which is probably how I would most use it. For day 322, I thought I’d share with you a basic drawing I did, along with a second negative version I created while playing around in Photoshop. Enjoy!
(unserious) sour grapes warning: I can do many things with a computer and now I discover that talented visual artists can, almost casually, pick up a computer and do this? Whatever will us poor wordy guys do? Do I have to pick up a pencil again?
Meanwhile, I’ll just admire what you’ve done.
Ha ha! You poor wordy guys continue to impress with quick wit and eloquence. Thanks so much for the comment!
