Jeremy Sutton, Horszowski Trio at Kohl Mansion, 2017, iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, Procreate

This drawing was created on February 12th, 2017, from life during a concert of the Horszowski Trio at the historic Kohl Mansion, part of the Music at Kohl Mansion program. The musicians featured in this drawing are, from left to right, Rieko Aizawa, piano; Jesse Mills, violin; and Raman Ramakrishnan, cello. They played works by composers Arthur Foote, Leonard Bernstein and Franz Schubert. I drew the whole time they were playing, roughly about 75 minutes. I started before they took to the stage and you’ll notice, if you look at the replay video below carefully, that I first draw in the piano with no one sitting at it and then the musicians arrive and I start to draw them over the piano…

Replay video showing how the drawing progressed from start to finish.

The scene as I drew the musicians.

    This was an amazing artistic process to watch unfold. We appreciate you mentioning MAKM, as it is a very special intimate venue to listen to chamber music, as it was meant to be heard.

    I’m wondering how you transfer your iPad art to a form that can be enjoyed and viewed by others?

    Thank you for sharing.
