I had planned to post a different drawing, but the photo was mired in blue shadows that I couldn’t whisk away with Photoshop. So, I’m going with my ink drawing from Day 7 of Inktober. The drawing is already on my Instagram page, so to add a little newness to this post, I messed around with the colours of the drawing in Photoshop.
I was inspired by the large numbers of Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets who migrated through Burlington last week. It was enchanting to walk by trees and bushes filled with these perpetually moving feathered fairies.
For the last drawing, the orange happened to be my current background colour setting in Photoshop. Why? I can’t remember. I thought I’d give it a whirl to be extra bold. And then I picked two more bold colours that seemed to provide an interesting contrast. A little too garish? I used the Colour Picker and Paintbucket tools to change the colours. The lines in the drawing are a bit rough and have unexpected breaks, so the extent of many of the colour fills depends on the location of the tiny line breaks.
