Marking Time

Image by SnaggleTooth 2018

Around holiday time when I was getting kids books to marker in, I got some extras for me. (Hi Gran Annie! Thanks for your past marker-ing inspiration). I haven't done anyone else's pics to color in since my childhood. It felt weird to do it, but just as an exercise I wanted to see one finished. So far I've only had time for this one.

Turns out I'm horrible at staying in the lines or coloring in the marked zones all the way. Plus I used some different types of markers (highlighters) than just the ones I had given out, to "pop" the wings .

I only began to play with this a few weeks ago, n plan to keep at the altering game. So all that are here are just starting points to crop for the rotating mirror fun. No time at all this week, Tho did get the state tax forms done, have just copied them n still have to go to the post office window to weigh the envelope.

There is a scientific reason, besides the no species of that bird exist or color choices, that this could never be considered realistic, being able to exist in a natural world photo.

Can you guess what I already knew what was wrong with the elements in this pic?

Tabor, helps take the drab away. Now if only it felt like Spring out there. I thought for sure you would know what's wrong with tha parts of this one!

Colleen, I just picked markers n colored in. I was going to do the bird sokid but changed my mind when it was so dark. I bet you know too!.

Ellis, any fun that can be done by my sore hands shall not look bland!
I have actually written a coloring book years ago, for toddlers.

I shall return for the game stopper later...

Thanks for the shout out. Your ability with blending colors is fantastic.

Gran Annie, I lost patience with the solid color-in part. Even when a kid I did that to Paint-by-Number Oil paint kits. That's why my parents got me a set of tube paints n I began my discovery of art fun. Thanks.

I love the colours you've used. There's a real art in doing that.

LLcoolJ, There were so many partitions it was tough finding a way to alternate without abutting the same colors! Thanks for noticing!
