A Watercolour Painting Scanned into my iPad; and a Haiku.

Folded washing

I did this watercolour and wrote the words quite a few years back. I scanned it in using the “Scanner Pro” app on my iPad, and then took it into the “Phonto” app to type in my haiku. I call this picture and haiku; an illustrated haiku, rather than a haiga.

In a haiga the relationship between the artwork and haiku, is of a particular kind, and not specifically an illustration of the haiku. Although, it can get tricky to knowing exactly where to draw the line (no pun intended ) 🙂 in our modern English versions of this traditional Japanese art-form.

This one about the washing, will be included in a book  I’ve put together called “Poems from Home: a Collection of Illustrated Haiku”. Another handmade book of mine, that I’ll slowly turn into an ebook, using “Book Creator”; an excellent app. There’s more about the apps I use on my page “About Some Art apps, Other apps, and My Books”.

I drew this looking out my lounge room window. I used oil pastel on blue paper in the “Art Set Pro” app.

I have so many arty and writing projects on the go and then I get new ideas in-between (which of course is great) but, it means it’ll take a fairly long time to do it all.  Not to worry, it’s good fun, which makes it easy to persevere!

I hope to fit in ocaisionally, along with my iPad art, some art on paper, and perhaps on canvas as well. Thankful, for all the choices in media that I have, and opportunities to do these things.

Have a lovely day.

    1. Thanks for your kind words. Really love your work! I mention on my blog that I was only going to have time to post fortnightly..then said perhaps a shorter post in the interim period…then in the past two weeks, though not daily…I’ve managed a few! Still, it is most likely to be fortnightly, with one, perhaps two shorter posts in between..I’m seeing so many lovely blog posts, including yours.. that I seem to get more and more ideas for my own work! I’m going to enjoy having a further look at your artworks, haiku and prose and to seeing your future posts. 🙂

    1. Thank you. 🙂 Your work is lovely, and now that I follow your blog, it’ll be great to see your art in my WordPress reader. I’ll also have a closer look at your blog. Your header there is very effective; a very good way to show a collection of your excellent portraits. I see you use soluble oil pastels…delightful to use; I’ve often used them, and the all the other media you mention. I’ll probably use them all again, however, at the moment I’m having fun using similar media in the “Art Set Pro” app. Of the art apps I use, it’s my favourite one. Hope you have a beautiful day too.
