*Began with watercolour on Cold Pressed, 300gsm Arches watercolour paper. Then dabbed freehand with my finger, some art app media, in the Procreate app. Available here, as a “Art – Postcard” print, approx. “15cm x 21cm”.
This is Bob, one of our dogs – Jack Russels – sitting on the couch. Probably hoping to hear those favourite words, “want to go for a walk”. Below is our other dog called Seth….sleeping – they do a lot of that, as they are both getting on in years. I worked from some quick sketches, and managed a photo of Bob before he moved. In both images I’ve worked on them further in the “Procreate” app.
I decided to print and make cards from the artwork; adding to a growing selection of images I use when producing my cards. *More info of the processes under the pics.
Before printing my art (and taking them into “Pages”) I make some colour and tonal adjustments to the images, in the Photo section of my iPad. Over time I’ve learnt how the image on the screen needs to look to make a good print; also I take into consideration the paper I choose to print on.
I’ve discovered the paper I use, will have a huge impact on how well the print turns out. For my cards I use Canson 220 drawing paper. It has a lovely texture and weight for cards – and for larger prints. For my “Art – Postcards”, (not foldable), I use a matte, lovely lightly textured heavier paper: 300gsm.
I have some cards for sale in my local area; and on various items, in my Red Bubble shop, here.
Really enjoy the many creative opportunitys available with using an iPad (don’t use a computer). Thankful†
Thanks for viewing my work – enjoy your weekend!
