He used his iPad to spontaneously depict impressions of the landscape surrounding him, catching the first spring blossoms, the smell of summer, the saturated colors of autumn, and the stark shapes of dark branches in winter time. The 220 (plus four bonus) iPad paintings in this book are printed with up to seven special colors to match the richness of the artist’s vision and tipped in on a dark blue paper stock.A short introduction by Hockney reveals how this planned project became a lifeline during the COVID lockdown, from which he spread his message of hope: “Remember they can’t cancel the spring.”The book is accompanied by a smaller extra volume of ink and watercolor drawings: the complete facsimiles of two sketchbooks from 2019, starting in the vicinity of the artist’s Los Angeles home and following him along scouting trips around Normandy. Both volumes come in a clamshell box with the artist’s iPad painting of an aerial view of the Normandy house and garden on the inside of the lid.Vol. 1: 43.6 x 31.2 cm, 236 pagesVol. 2: 28 x 19.8 cm, 174 pages
