Sunday Photo Challenge . Design #2 . Kite In A Tree

On March 7th, I gave you a peek at a drawing I’ve been working on for a presentation post to represent the month of March. The final drawing will be posted on Writing and Illustrating‘s website on March 27. When I think of March, I think of windy weather, and therefore, I think of kites. Thus the subject for the theme for this drawing.

Flying a Kite . still tweaking the original idea. (#2)

The orples are helping Jack get his kite out of the tree. Sometimes, it appears, orples are handy to have around.

The colors are a lot brighter in the printed drawing. I need to figure out why I am losing color scanning, then posting. Hmmmm, anyone out there know why this might be?

Weekly Photo Challenge . Contrast #2

My youngest son tells me I am getting side tracked away from my books, which is really why I began blogging. So I decided why not bring the orples into the picture on occasion? Therefore, Olivia and Oscar have decided to spend a day on Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. They were amazed when they got there at how few people there are around. So they decided to spread a blanket and make a day of it. In order to allow them the luxury of being in the photo, I had to print, then rescan the original photo, so it is not as clear as it might otherwise be.

The orples spend a day at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Anyone that has been following my blog already knows about these little creatures, but newcomers might wonder what I am talking about. If you don’t know, please feel free to check out my orples overview category in the right hand column.

Beach view directly downloaded with no orples in sight.

Obviously, this version of the photo which was directly downloaded shows a much better ‘contrast’ than the scanned version above. The morning I took this photo, it was rather chilly, thus the lack of activity on the beach.
