Hand watercolor with TL2 contrast bump, PS watercolor brush background. As a neophyte watercolorist, I feel like I’m back in the fourth grade. But I have to say, it was pretty cool watching the paints spread and blend together. So this was done with student grade watercolors. And I keep reading, “wait awhile before splurging on artist grade paints”. Why? It’s going to kill me to do so. Patience has never been one of my virtues. I’ll give it a couple months.
And I REALLY want a better scanner because this lost all the subtleties in the translation. As near as I can tell, I’m only able to scan at 300 dpi (Office Jet Pro 8715) and this came across as a 200 dp TIF as I had not yet found the settings link to bump it up to 300 dpi. Sigh.
