Gentle Soul by Simanion Gentle Soul by Simanion
Medium: Watercolour
Size: A4

Thought I'd finally get around to uploading some things! This is a painting from last year. I actually can't remember whether the abstract forms or the face came first, but it was always about depicting a kind of serenity or gentle, happy place. Probably subliminally influenced by the big melting candle on my desk.

Love it. And I don't know if you scanned this or took a photo, but it comes out great.

Thank you! It's a scan, with some post-scan Photoshopping to colour correct and attempt to match the original. It has its own quality but a lot of the subtle colours or traditions and textures are lost. After all this time I still haven't found the perfect way to get a solid digital reproduction of my work. This method has good results, but takes forever! What do you typically do?

I Always take photo's because I don't have a scanner. I make sure it's placed in the best daylight I can get, but with watercolors it's Always a struggle. I hate doing it.
