    Watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/4 imperial. I took this picture at Georges Cove, Padstow on a recent visit. I was after a photo with reflections and this little dog willingly obliged with the perfect pose. I have made a video of the painting process for this and I’ve be posted it on my YouTube channel at: https://youtu.be/1IGWYb4Ymso

    Happy painting

    Pete

    I like this a lot, Pete.  I remember another picture you did of a little dog with great personality.  I watched parts of your You Tube video.  When you added more blue to the water, the picture came to life!

      @paula-j Thanks Paula. The other picture would have been the Border Collie waiting on the bridge. I’ve used time-lapse in the past. I decided this time to do a real time video. At 1 hour it is quite long, but people have the choice of skipping through. I do it myself! Quite a learning curve, making videos.

      Pete.

    Great work Pete, nice to see drawing stage. How doyou support the iPad whilst landscape format drawing, have you a picture of your set up. Since you introduced me to Camera-Lucida I also bought the osmo device for my iPad,however, unless I’m missing something so embarassingly obvious you can only copy ‘portrait’ format so I actually copy my landscape drawings in portrait mode( side ways on ) if you see what I mean which is not that easy or natural. Thanks for any help.

      @jimbo24 Hi Jim. Thanks for your comments. In reply to your question I also bought the osmo stand, but as yet, I’ve not used it because as you say it’s only good for portrait mode. I actually made a simple stand that holds my iPad horizontal to the drawing board and is adjustable for height. Because I tend to work at 1/2 imperial usually I mirror my iPad screen to an Apple TV so I can see what I’m doing without having to stand over the iPad. The distance your iPad needs to be from the drawing is roughly the size of the largest dimension of your drawing paper e.g. 1/2 imperial (22″ x 15″) needs to be roughly 22″ away. I’ll take some pictures and show you what I did.

      Pete.

    Thanks Pete. I also tried a program for mirroring on my laptop but your Apple TV sounds a better option. Does it have to be an Apple TV or will it work with a smart tv.
