First flowers of the year! They are gorgeous! :-)
Thanks Marina! Do you tweak your watercolors in PS or just creat different things from scratch? I’m looking for a book to help Bugs and myself with learning it.
Usually I don’t do much on my scanned watercolors. Just clean them up and maybe add a filter [noise - paint daubs etc] for very big enlargements. I don’t know of a book. The method I use is “learn in the process”! I’ve used that even for very complicated applications! I find manuals weren’t written by …human beings!
For my digital paintings, I do them from scratch. I just start using all those wonderful brushes and mediums available and paint as I would on paper. It just takes more time – for me anyway. Helps a lot that I’m using a very good pen tablet.
Is there a pen tablet you recommend that isn’t too pricey?
The one I was recommended to [and using] is a wacom bamboo tablet and they vary in prices. I think they start from 79$ appx which is not bad and with 200 you get their best one. You can see them here: http://www.wacom.com/products/pen-tablets/bamboo. A word of warning though, once you start using it, there’s no turning back!
Thanks Marina! I have looked at the link, and it was really helpful for figuring out which would suit my needs the best as a photographer.
the one flower looks like it has a little smiley face in it. so cute/ good job!
Wonderful quote, Arnel. Beautiful colours for your floral contribution.
Thank you! I’m going to have to make another trip out to the wilds. I’m out of photos.
Love the colors in these photos, thank you for sharing.
What a great variety of colours, very nice flowers, and great photos.
I love the Lincoln quote… One of my favorites!
Thanks! Like Ben Gates, he’s my favorite president too. Especially now since the movie…
