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, part of the Music at Kohl Mansion program that takes place in the beautiful historic Kohl Mansion in Burlingame, California. This trio will be featured again on February 25, 2024.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. This video is integrated into the final image as an Augmented Reality (AR) overlay. The AR overlay can be viewed using your smart phone (iPhone or Android) through the free AR app HidNFlix .

    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.
