iPad watercolor: sailboat and island

12 Jun
After rough sketching, I painted the sky, using the watercolor tool of the Tayasui Sketches app that doesn’t “dry” until you tap the drop icon. While the paper was “wet” I added blue to my purple wash near the horizon:
On a different layer, I painted the sea:
On a third layer, I painted the rocky island, including the fort. I erased paint from the sailboat and the surf around it. And added a few strokes of different blue on the sea layer:
Then I painted the fort red, darkened the rocks, erased paint where the seagulls were, and painted the sailboat:

Reproduction of Moebius’ ‘Le voyage d’Hermès’

9 Jun
Moebius was commissioned by Hermès in 2011 to create nine illustrations for a campaign called Voyage d’Hermès. This is one of those and like the eight others, no Hermès product appeared:
I sketched it on my 30×30 cm watercolor pad:
For the outline I used a 0.05 mm Uni-ball Pin pen:
Then I washed the paper and applied some yellow and a bit of orange:
I continued painting the figure and the bird, the skyline, and started with greens and blues for the wave:

Final version, 30×20 cm:
Gift ready and framed!
A couple days later, I tried a digital version of it which i finished on the same day. Procreate on iPad Pro, 1878×1440 px:

#sketch: Hiroshige’s “Dragon In Clouds”, 1830-1839

14 Jun

I drew Hiroshige’s “Dragon In Clouds, 1830-1839” on iPad mini, using ArtRage. I started it last month flying back from San Francisco and finished it last week (again in planes!) during my trip to Boston.

I’m not overly happy with it. I struggled with the tools, unable to find the right brush, the right setting; even with the colours I struggled! I’m posting it for closure. There.

#sketch: Adrien endormi dans l’avion

3 May

Cette nuit pendant le vol San Francisco – Francfort, j’ai dessiné mon petit voisin endormi – mon fils Adrien. Ce n’est pas très ressemblant, car l’enfant du portrait semble plus âgé, mais j’aime assez, cependant. Voici la grande version (1536 x 2048) :
