A Watercolour on Fabriano 300gsm %100 cold pressed, cotton paper. It’s about 2 .5 inches by 3.5 inches (6cm x 9cm) in size… I often enjoy working within a small format. This is the size of ACEO art cards; popular with some artists.
I scanned it into the iPad with the “Scanner Pro” app. Then printed it onto an A4 sheet of Canson 220 drawing paper. This is not an inkjet paper, so I had to saturate the colour a little in the iPad’s Photo app. In this way I could get quite a close equivalent to the colours of the original work.
I liked how the blue was a bit more vivid on the print, and have since gone back to the watercolour and splashed on a bit more blue paint. As is usual one informs the other.
The original watercolour and coloured pencil work in the middle above is a little over 2” x 4” (5.2cm x 10.2cm) in size. I drew both my little artworks from memory and imagination. Below are some more of the images of it, as I worked on it further on the iPad, in “Procreate”. There’s some info on the captions.
As I’m used to working small, I think this is one of the reasons I find drawing – with my finger – on an iPad, quite a comfortable size working space. And it’s handy you can expand the screen, to get closer for detailed work. I began with a mini, and then had a iPad Air 2, both excellent iPads. However, as I do all my online work, and lots of art on an iPad, not on a computer, I decided to update to a 10.5 iPad Pro. *To enlarge them all, please tap on a pic.
Thank you for stopping by; enjoy the Easter break. 🙂
