A year ago I came across a movie, "Tim's Vermeer", a movie for anyone remotely interested in art and how some of the artists in the 14th century might have created such masterpieces. Some, it is believed to use a device called a camera obscura. It was a lens or a hole in a box that projected an image on a surface. I won't go into detail because the movie explains it way better than I could. Shortly after watching the movie, I saw a program on the web that was made for the Ipad. The program is called Camera Lucida 8.0. It can be downloaded from Itunes. Cost is only 5 bucks. This is where the tool comes in. I saw that the people that were using the program on their Ipads were just setting the pad on books to draw or paint. Well I, being almost 71, wanted to sit and draw, so I made a drawing platform that sets on a 55 degree angle and is adjustable as to size of the drawing. I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I kind of surprised myself by drawing and painting a little better than I thought. A real artist would make photo-type renderings. This program allows you to look through the picture that you have downloaded into the Ipad and also zoom in to really see and reproduce the detail of the drawing or painting. I am also providing a link to a video that explains the Camera Lucida 8.0. Also are three drawings that I made, not being an artist. I am adding two pictures of the final version of the stand and some measurements, sorry for the scribbling. There are two different Ipad holders, one for portrait and one for landscape. The Ipad holder can be adjusted up and down to change the size of the picture, closer for smaller drawings. Bob.
