This was the second drawing I made and was the first time I had used the iPad full capabilities; I drew on location, an old ruined church in a remote part of Devon. After speaking to Rob I decided to try and limit my palette and to use layers to see how appropriate it may be to expect the students to do this also. It started well and the drawing progressed to what amounted to a rough sketch, I enjoyed the more ‘drawing’ like approach to the line and I moved around the church to start another drawing (the one visible here) and dropped the opacity on the first layer and started drawing on the second. This does work and is of no real inconvenience than starting a new drawing, and then it started raining. I hadn’t considered the rain as a problem but I was actually unsure if the iPad could handle rain. I went to a café and looked at the drawings playing them back to see what I was doing, but the more I looked at them the more I realized ‘I don’t actually care about these drawing’. This is worrying; I fear the students may have a similar response. I got out a real sketchbook and pencil and drew all afternoon.
