I’ve used my ink-samples to paint for a while now and I thought I’d share my ‘trick’. Not really a trick, but it makes it easy to use them. Before I open the vial, I shake it, so inkdrops stick to the cap. When I take the cap off, I simply add a few drops [...]

I like to switch around my paints (a lot) and found it very annoying to do so when I blue-tacked the paint to the paintbox. I like to squeeze in more paints than the official number so I removed the pan-holder from my tiny paintbox to do so.

Ever since I started colouring with watercolours, I’ve had trouble scanning them properly. Most scanners I used would suffer from highlight blow-out. The sometimes very detailed changes in colours and intensity would vanish. By chance, I got to try out the scanner on a Canon Pixma MP540. I set it to ‘photo’ for the scan [...]
This afternoon I made some drawings with the Inkling. I sketched some drawings on paper and then transferred them to my computer. I had to figure out how Inkscape works again, but in general, it went smooth and fast.
I think it will help in more easily converting sketches to digital drawings. I like!
November awaits just around the corner of this week, and traditionally, in November I do Nanowrimo. Okay, not every year, most years since 2001 or so. This year I decided to participate again and I have not started anything yet. I’ll see where it takes me.
I’ve also registered for the Sketchbookproject 2012 and hopefully this year I’ll get the notebook in time so I can do a little bit often and fill the whole thing up :)
Looking forward to both projects.
I’ve played around with the Inkling a bit today. It requires a little bit getting used to (I tend to hold my pens low, it appears, and this interferes with the Inkling-signal). These images show the difference between the drawing on paper (first image) and the vector-image that came from the Inkling device. It looked [...]
I recently went on a trip to the UK and made a few drawings. This first one I made while we waited for the ferry to cross over with. As a kid I got sea-sick a lot so this trip gave me the opportunity to see if I’d still get sea-sick. See how I try [...]
This week I made two drawings for two family-related projects. I don’t think any of my family reads my site anyway, so I’ll post them here tonight (they’ll see them tomorrow) I’ve started to get the hang of colouring the background before the foreground. Usually I want to jump right ahead to the fun parts [...]
