Digital Art – By Traditional Working Methods

In amongst my front work some of my time is taken up with other projects… Here’s a digital painting which is under way (using Apple Pencil and iPad Pro. The Three Duchesses will show three of Sir William Stanier’s Duchess locos in steam but on shed.

This was very much like working in traditional pencil… except for the remarkable ability to cut and paste.  Quite a time saving, but not something to be utilised in the finished painting I think…


Here’s progress to date on turning the sketch into a ‘painting’. This is all happening in ‘Sketch Club’, and painting is using a mix of a pencil tool and a ‘watercolour’ brush, you can have all sorts of ‘mixed media’ combinations in these drawing applications.  The effects are shown well in the detail below:
