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.

iPad Sketching Workshop, Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Friday & Sunday, 11 & 13 January 2019

The introduction of iPads that work with Apple Pencils has totally changed the landscape of digital artwork. This workshop takes absolute beginners to digital sketching through the paces of understanding Procreate, the best creative app for iPads. A series of demonstrations and exercises help you explore urban sketching, compositions for storytelling, and even learn how your work can go from screen to print.

Rob has conducted many workshops internationally, largely centered around his experience with urban sketching using an iPad and the app, Procreate.

Here's more information on Rob's workshop schedule, along with details of previous sessions he has conducted.
