In 2013 I discovered an watercolor painting app called Auryn Ink. It’s a great app for the iPad. It allows near-realistic watercolor paintings on a tablet. It has good simulations of interactions between pigment and water. I’ve painted a few simple zodiac animals with it in 2013 and 2014. Here are some of them, plus a few other paintings.
The whole thing started with a impromptu doodling of a rat at dinner to keep unruly kids occupied. Then a few days later I doodled something that turned out to look like a dog.
That got me thinking. So I doodled a few more at home, thinking that maybe this will turn into the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac.
And, lastly, a scared bunny. Happy Easter.
Some of these paintings have been uploaded to Wikimedia. Maybe one day I’ll write an Wikipedia article on Auryn Ink.
