I wanted to try the Split Screen feature and wasn’t sure which drawing apps would work so I used Apple’s Notes. It worked just as I had hoped – the app was on the left and the photo of Natalia in the camera roll was in another window on the right. Perfect. The app leaves a lot to be desired as far as sketching is concerned. I have since discovered that Procreate and Sketchbook work in split screen. (Also Paper by 53 but I really dislike that one.) At this point I was still using the old stylus – I didn’t start using the Apple Pencil until a few days later. I can’t remember why. I had a reason but I’ve forgotten.

Last week I acquired a new iPad Pro. Everything from the iPad transferred seamlessly into the iPad Pro via iCloud – no computer involvement at all. Phew. I sat silently and restlessly as I watched iPat communicate with iPat. Sometimes I got the impression they were discussing me. I was antsy and wanted to hurry up and get drawing so when they finally allowed it I doodled a guy on a tv show.

After I did a transfer monotype (seen in a previous post some time ago) using this drawing, I noticed that there was sufficient ink remaining on the copper plate so I decided to keep working on the plate and run it through the press. Well, it printed out just fine, but I hated it. Destined for the garbage heap. One day last week I was using acrylics for a project I’ve been working on and decided to see what would happen if I painted over the oil based printing ink.
I referred to a sketch that had been drawn from life in a small gridded notebook and then colored in my iPAD while on the High Line with NYC Urban Sketchers. Arches printmaking paper.
I wanted to take the bus up to The Met but, before I realized it, I discovered I had walked most of the way and just kept going. The plan was to re-visit the Beckmann exhibition but I wasn’t in the mood so I just wandered aimlessly around. I was pleased to discover, in the prints corridor, everything was new to me. More wandering tired me out so I decided a coffee in the cafeteria was necessary.
