« I used to think the computer was too slow for a draughtsman. You had finished a line, and the computer was 15 seconds later, an absurd position for someone drawing, but things have improved, and it now enables one to draw very freely and fast with colour. There are advantages and disadvantages to anything new in mediums for artists, but the speed allowed here with colour is something new, swapping brushes in the hand with oil or watercolour takes time.» David Hockney.

 
The acclaimed exhibition in 2012 at the Royal Academy in London showed the extent to which Hockney’s work includes a tangible mix of historical, traditional influence, and brand new medias, as demonstrated with these iPad drawings, featuring the Yorkshire landscape, printed in 2014-2015, and showcased for the first time in Paris.
