Sketching 2.0

(Left) Sketch by Shawn Lindsay of Degas's Nude Study for Little Dancer of Fourteen Years, XIX. (Right) Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas, Nude Study for Little Dancer of Fourteen Years, XIX, 1879–80. Bronze, 27 3/8 x 11 9/16 x 11 15/16 in. Private Collection.

Local artist Shawn Lindsay (a.k.a. Painta) stopped by the museum this week and tweeted us the sketch (at left) he drew during his visit to Degas’s Dancers at the Barre: Point and Counterpoint. Notice anything different? In lieu of pen and paper, Lindsay used his iPad to take down drawings as he perused the galleries. Just as technology has influenced visitor experience and the strategies museums use to share their collections, technology is changing the way artists study art and store and share their own work.

Artists out there, what are some of the ways new media has influenced your artistic process?
