*Dark sepia, Faber Castell artist pen, Inktense block and watercolour washes, drawn in a favourite A4 sketch journal.
Painted with watercolour and a black Pentel Brush pen in my A4 journal. They began as seperate pieces, but seem to work well together.
Drawn with my finger, using the lovely ink in the Zen Brush 2 app. This is a print of it on Premio Kozo inkjet paper. I thought it’s creamy colour, and delicately textured surface, quite suited the subject matter. And it just happens that both the paper, and the art app, originate in Japan – a most suitable pairing!
I used the “Scanner Pro” app to scan the above painting from my journal, into the iPad. I was glad to capture clearly the watercolour puddles. I love the texture of the watercolour paper, and how readily it takes up the inkjet, pigment ink.
The “Scanner Pro” app is easy to use, but does take a bit of practice; and as is usual with a scanned in artwork, I took it into Procreate to erase any unwanted shadows, soften edges, etc..
On the left above, is my original drawing on a small piece of brown Kraft paper. I really like the look of the white uni-ball pen on this paper, and so handy for highlights. The other one is a print of it on watercolour paper – I made some small changes in Procreate.
Sometimes I work on a print with pencils and watercolour.
I can get a print to look much the same as the scanned in art; and I enjoy the processes it takes to do that. However, I also enjoy making changes and drawing further on the scanned image, in an art app; sometimes doing minimal work, sometimes a lot.
I write more about various inkjet printing processes, here.
