Since retiring and spending much time in photographing landscapes, flowers and insects, I was inspired by visiting artists' homes and studios during Dorset Arts Weeks. I was going to buy a sketchbook, but bought an iPad ... David Hockney was doing his iPad thing, so I decided to create art on my iPad. I initially used the Sketchbook Pro app, but have recently changed over to the Procreate app, which I now prefer. Joining Poole and East Dorset Art Society has certainly taught me a lot about creating artwork. I decided to stick with my digital art, using the iPad to mirror the techniques the others were using with conventional media.
