New Pens!

I couldn't bring too many art supplies with me on the plane to Arizona of course, so I brought my black Sakura Micron pens in an array of point sizes as well as some new pens I am trying by Sakura called Gelly Roll pens. I love these pens so much! Of course the colors in these images are slightly off since I don't have my scanner with me and I am taking photos with my camera.

I have seen many artists use their iPhones for taking pictures of artwork but I have yet to figure it out. I have tried photographing in sunshine and in shade but the pictures have a terrible blue cast or the color is completely blown out.

If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

So there isn't much I miss except my scanner and the rest of my art supplies. Can't go anywhere without those necessities!

In the meantime, I am hiking, swimming and learning my way around my new hood.

I still can't believe I have to leave on Tuesday. I am dreading it and no, this is not just about the weather.

Here are a few more sketches:

That is it for today! Enjoy your day!

To take a good photo with your iPhone, you have to have bright, shaded light. You will find this a lot easier in Tucson than Boston. You will also have to fix the saturation or hue with software like Pixelmator (for Mac). When you take the photo, tap on the screen to get the camera to focus (and color correct) the important part of the photo. Hope this helps.
