“Self-Portrait” (iPad drawin)g by David Hockney
While still working in the investment business but secretly studying art, I discovered that David Hockney was making art using his phone and iPad. If one of Britain’s most respected and influential artists was making and selling art from his phone, I thought it was worth pursuing. Small problem: my phone was still attached to my wall! However, I did have an iPod touch and downloaded the art app called “Brushes”. As I was still working and enjoying a one hour bus commute each day, I used that time to hone my digital painting skills. Happy with the results, I soon invested in my first iPad which was a huge step towards “The Creation of GNAY”.
