Tablet 'drawing' provides Artists with a readily transportable method for notation. Internationally, artists (including David Hockney RA amongst others), are turning to readily available Apps that enable digital drawing.
Sally led a workshop that reviewed the currently available digital Apps; explained the benefits and draw backs of the various available Apps; demonstrated the various tools built in to the operating platform of Brushes XP, and considered the potential and material possibilities of transferring the digital image to a printed medium.
