iPad drawing of Laura

I drew this on an iPad using a stylus pen in pencil mode. For the most part it felt like using a pencil the way it responded to pressure, although broad sweeps with the edge of the stylus were more charcoal like. This is the first time I've made a digital drawing and I rather liked it. However, because the resulting image has much in common with a pen and ink wash, a medium I also have little experience of, I have been inspired to experiment with that instead of doing more iPad drawings! I'm sure I will do more digital drawing, the ability to flawlessly undo marks is fantastic. But, may be that's the appeal of pen and ink; every mark counts and is more or less permanent and scratchy corrections, unwanted blobs and smears all add to the challenge and character of a drawing.
