iPad Artist, Urban Sketcher
...and nice guy + gadget geek, some might add. Well, those are some of the better things Rob has been called. Making art on location on his iPad Pro, also known as urban sketching, is what he is most known for, and is what he loves doing whenever possible. There's nothing like the alchemy of being in one spot, absorbing the details of what's happening around him, then capturing the essence of what he sees and feels on his (digital) canvas.
Keen to learn with Rob? Here's the latest in workshop info. Stay tuned for more 2019 workshop announcements soon!
Getting Started with Urban Sketching, Brisbane

On the sunny coasts of Brisbane, Australia, Rob will be introducing participants to iPad urban sketching from scratch. Demonstrations and exercises will get everyone up to speed on the essentials of navigating Procreate (indoors). The group will then head outdoors where Rob walks everyone through the steps of breaking a scene down to capture digitally, on location.
