In the above drawing I’ve begun with a flourish of my Pentel Brush pen, then I added some watercolour, coloured pencil, and Neopastels…and a little white gouache.
As is usual I’ve drawn quite a lot this past month…and to help a share a few of them here, I’ve again used the Pic Collage app to collate some of them together.
I have enjoyed revisiting the Art Set pro app, and continue to experiment with making my own prints of my iPad art (and also some reproductive prints of my art in traditional media); and sometimes working further on them in traditional art media. I generally print on hot pressed cotton watercolour paper – I particular like the feel of coloured pencil on this smooth paper. Another paper that feels and looks lovely with coloured pencils – and is quite good to print on – is Reeves Premium drawing paper, both in the 200gsm and 300gsm – it also takes a little watercolour quite well.
Though I can use watercolour with my inkjet pigment ink prints, as the ink doesn’t run, I’ve mainly used coloured pencil recently.
Hopefully my subject matter speaks for itself, as I really don’t like to title them, though I know a title can add extra meaning. And I do like words! And writing poems, particularly haiku – which I hope to do more of at some stage. However, as I tend to continually return to similar image territory, “if” I display any to sell, I think I’d just have a general name, and number them, as in my “Flower” series.
At the moment, I’ve wandered back into painting with acrylics… it’s been a while… Though I’m enjoying them, the whole process is often a little more time consuming than I like. Perhaps, eventually, some will be up to scratch enough to share here.
Thank you for viewing my art and words, and hope you are all keeping safe! 🙂
