Yep, I finally tried sketching on my Microsoft Windows Surface! Admittedly I wasn’t using an application designed for sketching, instead I was using one designed for note-taking. As a result I had a limited palette of colors and a choice of pen or highlighter. But you know what – it really didn’t matter. This beautiful view was straight out of the window of the house we stayed in for Christmas and it would have been wrong to leave without sketching it. I’ve included a more detailed view below, where you can see the colors and pen sizes, plus some of the people on the beach.
I might try this again, but not in Africa. The screen size is smaller than I like, I love working on paper and I try to avoid too much technology while I’m in the bush. But for around New York, you never know…
Happy New Year!
