Four very quick sketches, done on four different visits. It's interesting to me to see the varying approaches. All three drawn freehand. The first on an iPad 2, the second and third on an iPad Air 2, and the fourth, the most recent, on an iPad Pro. It's intriguing to me that my favorite is the one I did first, 8 years ago. Perhaps I should have stopped while I was ahead!
As of this writing, Rick Niece, the unlikely Muse, has posted 1657 selfies on the Sktchy app for IOS. (see http://get.sktchy.com). And, as of this writing, many different artists have posted 2418 artworks inspired by his photos. A staggering number! Here are 5 of mine, all drawn freehand on iPad Pro, Apple Pencil between my fingers. What does drawn freehand mean? No image load. No Photoshop. Just drawing on a blank screen, filling it up with my scribbles.
