The first draft is the child's draft, where you let it all pour out and then let it romp all over the place, knowing that no one is going to see it... If one of the characters wants to say, 'Well, so what, Mr. Poopy Pants?' you let her.

Maine Shore (Watercolor)


I'm about halfway done. Maybe less. But I hate my scanner. It darkens part of the picture.

When at the Art Institute in Chicago I was reminded how only the originals have the right colors. I'm sure your original is beautiful (although I think the digital version looks great so far!)

Do you have some editing software that can tweak the colors for you? I use GIMP to get it to be closer to the original.

Nice work, BTW. Glad to see you at it again. : )

Thanks everyone :)

I've been shopping more expensive scanners and I'm thinking that I'll get a better one in September. It's just too much for my HP scanner.

Kris, I'll check out GIMP... thanks!
