A Dale of the East Riding

iPad Drawing

I made this drawing after gaining inspiration from some excellent images shown on the Blog "The Wold Ranger" by David MacKenzie Turner, which is worthy of a visit anytime.

The Starling Roost

iPad Sketch

It is quite a spectacle to see a 'Starling Roost'. Large flocks perform an aerobatic display prior to dropping down to roost into trees, bushes or reeds. This happens throughout the autumn and winter time. One of the reasons they behave like this is for safety. They make it really difficult for a raptor like a Peregrine to catch one single bird as it confuses the attacker by the erratic flying around.

More iPad Doodlings

Through the trees.

Gulls in the field

Trying to achieve fine detail is a bit of a problem to get use to I find, as using a stylus which is not like using a thin pencil as its quite a thick and is alien to what one would normally associate with drawing.

Winter Scenes

 I wonder if we will see snow this winter, hopefully not as much as the rain we did get during the summer.

This one is for Steve Borichevsky

New Medium

My Attempt at a Hockney

This is my little celebration of our greatest living Artist David Hockney. RA who is currently exhibiting his latest work at the Royal Academy of Art.

I have attempted to reproduce a scene which I photographed on a recent cycle ride.
(See my countryside blog post dated 16th Feb 2012 for the photograph)

David Hockney's latest work which he completes from drawings he creates on an iPad 2 and reproduces in the studio. Its extremely difficult to try and create something in his style as he sees colours in scenes that really need a lot of examination to discover. Initially his latest work looks (to some) like something a child would produce, but the more you study it the more amazing it becomes. 
Unfortunately you wont find that here, but it was worth a try.
