Jug­gles light­ing and com­po­si­tion on an iPad, and de­picts a furry crit­ter

hen I bought an iPad with a Wa­com sty­lus I re­alised that my stu­dio could be al­most any­where. Th­ese days I can work in a café, where I don’t have to pay rent and meals are pre­pared right there. Paint­ing out­doors isn’t par­tic­u­larly com­fort­able, though, be­cause of the light re­flec­tions, but the car can be very comfy. It’s lib­er­at­ing stuff!

Work­ing on the iPad is in­tu­itive, and it’s easy to get to grips with its cre­ative

Wapps. I par­tic­u­larly like Pro­cre­ate be­cause all of its tools are very fo­cused, con­ve­nient and clear in their func­tion. The only ex­tra thing you might need is a de­cent sup­ply of in­spi­ra­tion. Nowa­days, there’s an over­load of in­for­ma­tion and it’s very dif­fi­cult to pick out the gems from the junk. One of the best ways is to visit mas­ter­pieces on show in gal­leries and mu­se­ums – but the zoo or aquar­ium will do just as well. Read­ing books also en­riches the imag­i­na­tion.
