Carte de Voeux Watercolor by TerryDodson Carte de Voeux Watercolor by TerryDodson
Here's some more watercolors - this a "Carte de Voeux" (New Year's Card) I did for Galerie du 9eme art a couple of years ago. I was going for that "Leyendecker New Years baby" look.

I painted this on 13 x 19 Fabriano Classico 300 Hot Press Paper, with Watercolors. Then in Photoshop, I then scanned the painting and dropped a layer of the linedrawing on top to darken up the lines. Finally I did little color corrections on the flesh, cloth and background.

I will post up some of the earlier stages later.

This is gorgeous mr Dodson. I´ve heard, that the best way to get the watercolors right is to take a picture with a very good camera, or scan the img and then in photoshop copy it, paste and then click "Multiply" on the new layer. Somehow, the color darkens a bit, and then you can adjust the levels. Same thing happens to me with ink markers. Although, I wouldn´t dare comparing my lame drawing skills with yours :)
All the best, mr Dodson.
