Icecream and Popsicles

Five Watercolor Popsicles
 I've been busy creating paintings of my favorite summer foods- ice cream and popsicles!
They're my favorite because I have such good memories of these treats outdoors with my siblings and cousins- and now my own son.  Summer is the best :)

These are all 9x12s - bigger than I normally paint.  Now I just need a bigger scanner!  So I have a question for you other artists out there, how do digitize your work?  Do you scan yourself or hire it out?  What scanner do you use?

  1. Yum! Those are beautiful too.

    I used to eat Otter Pops in the summer but something tells me they wouldn't make the best painting. I personally scan my own artwork up to 9 x 12 in size. I just have an Epson scanner/printer (WF-3520) which also prints watercolor paper. I don't think it's meant to but my husband has a way with machines. :)

    1. Nice! Thanks for the tip Jackie! I'll have to look up that printer. And I ate tons of otter pops as a kid too- I can't stand em now though... haha!

  2. Oh these are lovely.

    I just use a basic Epson scanner. It cost me about £100. Any bigger then A4 and I piece the work back together in photoshop after scanning the original in sections :-) I'd really like to invest in an A3 scanner or even an A2 scanner :)
