Swampy City by artbybluedaisy
Swampy City
Just the beginnings of an idea I'm working on.  Pictures are my own from Dominica.  Just started sketching in trees and putting in the lights for windows.  I want to add more structure using natural elements rather than paste traditional architecture into the trees and water...more to come.

I love to draw my line-work by hand; scan it in then color it or manipulate it in Photoshop.  The problem I have run into for years is that I lose fine lines and details through the scanning process.  As far back as ten years ago when I was doing line-work for a comic book I had to redo some lines thicker because they wouldn't show up, then caused coloring issues etc. because it made it harder to select an area.  It's crazy that smudges I didn't even notice will show but the fine details I want disappear.  By getting a better computer setup I can now scan at higher DPI but still the same issue. Any suggestions for how to retain/keep the fine lines?
koi Triptych by artbybluedaisy
koi Triptych
Watercolor on three small 5"x7" hard canvas.  I plan on hanging it on a covered porch so I coated it really heavy with clear poly. I wanted something a little different for Spring/Summer so I played with the colors of the water; thinking of Opalescence.
