Colorful Enough?

Standard

My intent was to use my new, Big Box of 64 Gelly Rolls to color this in.  But while I was sorting the new, Big Box of 64 Gelly Rolls and making the color chart they conveniently give you……I saw how maybe I wouldn’t be able to control the amount of color I was putting down.

So I chickened out.

I decided to still use color, but dug into my Irotijen colored pencils and my little jar of mineral spirits instead.

Flowing Flowers in Color

When I tell you the colors are “off” believe me.  There is more coral in that then is showing and for the life of me I cannot edit it to have it show.  Sigh.  The original is so much richer and not as neony.  I’m not sure if I will regularly be adding color to my work, but this was a nice change.  And it really is more time consuming….before I knew it, 4 o’clock had rolled around.

So I have a few editing programs – inkscape, gimp, paintshop pro…….any recommendation, tips, techniques, out and out yelling at me to do this or do that??? I’ll take it.  This was so frustrating to try to get an accurate representation of, I gave up.  pfffft!  Obviously I don’t know how to use any of the programs I have to do what I want.  Very different for me from editing photos.

Have a Wonderful Weekend and Happy Doodling!
