Extremadura via iPad

I made these sketches just a couple of weeks ago while visiting family in Spain. They show the 900-year-old ruins of a castle in Montemolin, a tiny village in Extremadura where my parents were born and returned to after decades living in Barcelona. I used the Procreate app and a Wacom Intuos Stylus on an iPad mini.

Since meeting iPad sketcher extraordinaire Rob Sketcherman in Singapore, my interest in digital urban sketching has raised a notch. I always like trying new things, so why not? I'm also intrigued by the possibilities of creating drawings on the go and sharing them right away from the tablet, without the limitations of having to take a photo.

  1. The problem I have with sketching plein air - especially in strong sunlight - is the fact you can't see the screen properly even when it's an iPad!

    What did you do to get round this. I find I need deep dark shade!
