iPad stand for the artist

 Sennelier Watercolours in John Pike Palette

A while back Sennelier gave me some of their beautiful art supplies for helping out with some colour tests.  The generous sized tubes of watercolours were perfect for filling my new John Pike palette.  Now I'm all set to paint some BIGGER pictures.

I like to be able to supplement my sketches with reference photos on my iPad 2 but it's been awkward to prop up so I can see the image while I'm painting.  Problem solved!  Today I bought a little wooden plate stand.  

For 1.5 euros, that's less than $2, I have the perfect iPad stand.

Now I'm ready to paint.  But actually I'd better go and do the ironing.

Brilliant idea...but surely the ironing can wait!

The ironing had been waiting a considerable time, Anne. Now it's done!

Brilliant solution.

Hope you got the ironing done. I have a nice pile if you want some more :)

Robyn Sinclair said...

LOL, Sue that's what everyone says.
Yes it's done but now I'm noticing that the house is way past its clean by date. Do you think I'm avoiding testing my painting talent?
It's a well-known fact that writers are always doing their washing.

I wanted you to know that while completely giving in to a rotten cold, I found your blog, and read it from the very first post. It's been really inspiring to watch your art evolve over the years.

Candy. :)

Carla - even I've never done that! But it gives me a nice warm feeling that I was able to hold your attention.
I thought your description of having your inlaws in your home was inspired writing. :)
