4 sketchers met at MLK memorial in the old fourth ward in Atlanta. There was a talk in the Ebenizer Babtist church with some children of the leaders of the civil rights movement including dr. King’s daughter. A few of us sketched some of the attendees. I was planning to do some oil painting but it didn’t work out. I did sketch some fellow subway riders on the way home.
I got a new toy! iPad mini. Today after some online research I made my own stylus using a damp q-tip and a metal tube. My coworker Will and I went to a local bar where I put the stylus to the test with the Procreate app. For my first iPad painting I painted an unsuspecting bar patron from a second floor vantage point. I had a lot of fun with this even though there is no pressure sensitivity. My homemade stylus held up pretty well and will do until I get a high tech Bluetooth stylus with pressure sensitivity.
