Watercolour, Gouache, Art App Media – Some Works in Progress

Since returning to using more of my traditional art media, I’m really enjoying the interplay between working both, off screen and on screen – reminds me of Star trek terminology – such as: catching a pencil sketch with the “Scanner Pro” app, playing about with it in an art app… printing it… then perhaps applying some watercolour.

Or enlarging and cropping a part of a scanned in watercolour, printing it, then applying more traditional media to it…and so on..and on.. *There’s info on the captions under each pic, describing it’s travels. 

Paintings of a woman’s face
Applying some more media in the “Procreate” app.
A mix of artworks and media
A collection of paper and media… really love the rich colours of the palette set of Caran d’Ache gouache. More about these two pics below.
Drawing of a woman’s face
A splash of watercolour in the “UBrush Pro” app, and also used a grey pencil in this app for the drawing, I then printed it onto Canson 220 drawing paper. You can see above, the watercolour and gouache I added to the print… and below is the same pic taken into “Procreate” where I’ve dabbed down some more colour work.

I’ve put more white to it, as is usual I get too heavy handed with my watercolour washes – which I suppose can suit in places, but not all over! A little more of a smile added as well – a good thing! 

I’m slowly gathering together a collection of finished works in traditional media on paper; as well as their digital/traditional offspring. Some closely resemble the parent, some less so…each a work in it’s own right.

On my post, “About Drawing Faces”, there’s some more general info about the “faces” I love to draw, and an example of a fine pencil technique I used to draw one of my sons as a baby.

I’m also working on some flowers and still life watercolours, and trying out a little oil-pastel – will share some soonish.

So thankful† for my art opportunities. 

Thanks for visiting!
