    Goldfish and lilies

    First post to the Gallery ...

    Sketched on the iPhone from a footbridge at the Chinese Garden ... ArtRage watercolor paper, Nomad dual-tip brush (the short end), and a bit of finger-painting ... Cropped the original in PhotoPad, and used a Wacom tablet to write in the Chinese characters at the upper right ("yuzao", fish and waterweeds) ...

    Same view of goldfish and lilies, different day, rainy, more realistic -- for Portland ... It's really a cloud study in disguise ... The stylus end of the Nomad dual-tip accounts for the level of detail ... One aim is to create the illusion of the monumental, thus the choice of small scale, physically and pictorially ...

    Thanks, screenpainter and everyone ... I'm actually more interested in cloud studies, so I'll post one of those in a separate thread ... This probably isn't the place to say it, but I've found that ArtRage on the iPhone is a much more intense experience than it is on the iPad ... Almost like a different app ...
