Paint like Hockney

Posted on: January 31st, 2012

This week is the opening of David Hockney’s long awaited exhibition A Bigger Picture. Visitors to the exhibition’s previews and the reviews are full of praise for Hockney’s ipad drawings. Hockney began experimenting with drawing on his iPhone in 2008, later adding an ipad to his drawing box. Hockney has produced over 94 ipad drawings, 51 of which will feature in the  exhibition. To see Hockney using his ipad to draw click here. Have a go yourself with the app brushes available for both the  ipad and ipod . The exhibition opens to the public on the 21st January and runs until the 9th April 2012. For further information visit the Royal Academy website.
