Large Format

Hi Jasmine, just a quick not to gush about your latest and greatest, "Princess of the Red Dragons". Your style is changing and just taking off, more and more ethereal. Fabulous! I have one of your earlier works "Labyrith Fairy" whom I love. I have a question I hope you can answer. I am a fellow artist and cannot find an inexpensive way to scan paintings larger than 9" x 12". Do I need to just buy one of those two thousand dollar large format scanners? Or is there another way to do it cheaply? Thanks so much :) - Bronwen

Re: Large Format

Hi Bronwen!

Happy to help!

I just have an $80 8.5x11 regular scanner - it's about 5 years old. You can get them even cheaper now I'm sure!

So many people have asked me how I scan 36"x48" (or larger) paintings with a little 8.5x11 scanner so I have written down my technique and posted it here:


No need to buy anything bigger than a standard size - anything bigger than that is just too expensive! My technique is kind of time consuming, but after a little practice it will become second nature and will make for a perfect scan to make prints, books, etc. from =)
