Valentine

February 14th, 2012


I don’t really do Valentine’s Day (other than having some quite festive raspberry cheesecake today actually), but I had this little lady waiting to be scanned since last month and today seemed like the perfect day. Watercolour and gouache on A3 paper, nice and simple.

    All Valentine’s should be that nice. I “did” Valentine’s alone, since the bf lives in England. He sent me choccies, so I basically devoured all but one :) (I was eating for the two of us? Haha.)

    I have an art question…how do you get your watercolors from paper to computer so bright with bright white background? Any help?

    Hi Autumn,

    If you’re using a textured watercolour paper it’s pretty impossible to get the paper white without blowing out all the colours in the paint. So what I do is scan it in and adjust the brightness/colour/levels/curves or whatever in photoshop, until the painted areas look good. Then I select the background and just delete it.

    Hope that helps!
