I love to draw, sketch, and paint.
Sketching and even painting have their own share of technological advances, far from the ordinary drawing materials we used in school. From Etch A Sketch to the latest stylus and digital drawing tablets, they all post a common challenge: creating an artwork.
To make the challenge even more challenging, I downloaded the free Sketchbook Copic Edition app and used the TV as my canvass.
Materials used aside from TV were:
|Sketchbook Copic Edition app I downloaded to provide the|
"blank sheet" and color palettes
|Our Mac mini for the app and TV connection|
|A wireless mouse, which served as my paintbrush|
|A snapshot of what I did. Looks very simple but it took me more than half an hour to create this. I didn't even think of|
finishing the background anymore because my hand was shaking tired already.
|The + at the center is the tip of my paintbrush|
|I finished the stream|
|Didn't finish the tree|
Other major outcomes are a very tired and numb right wrist, an achy upper back, and strained eyes. I advice the use of a stylus instead. Or should I say, I prefer the conventional pencil, paper, and paint. My first TV painting, though unifinished, was saved as a remembrance of this carpal challenge.
Thank you so much for bearing with me on my latest art endeavor. I’ll never do it again.
