actually, I finished her a couple of hours ago ~ but I needed to eat lunch, then decided to take a meandering walk up our 1/2 mile long driveway/road….
the snow has almost entirely melted now…
the sun is shining strong and the birds are chirping away ~
even hung our laundry out on the line to dry!
So here she is, my little 'Dreaming Robin'…
rendered in pencil, ink & watercolor ~
(I added the © watermark for right-click protection)
I wanted her colors to be soft and faded.
I like how she turned out ~
but then, when I scanned her into my documents,
I enhanced her with a photo imaging program I have for my Mac…
|Dreaming Robin ~ before adding imaging enhancements|
|Dreaming Robin ~ after adding imaging enhancements|
I really like how the 'after' turned out ~
how it is a little more mellow,
and how the digital "scratch-y" texture that is now on the 'surface'
reminds me of an old plastered wall...
...what are your thoughts?
* Blessed be *
