Brushes for iPad

This is my first 10 minute attempt at drawing using Brushes on iPad. It's a picture of the lovely Emma who I work with. Apparently Hockney is a convert and has switched from using the iPhone to using the iPad to create works of art to send to his friends. The great thing about it is that it is much easier than using a mouse to draw on a computer. Of course people who spend a lot of time drawing on their Macs and PCs have Wacoms - those lovely drawing pads. But these are expensive. They also aren't portable. The iPad means you can always have a drawing pad with you - and can whip it out to capture a scene if the fancy takes you.

Here are three works of art created by Hockney. What do you think?
