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?

    • Thank you Jo! It is in it intermediate stages. There are still additions to be made, but for time’s sake, I thought I’d post it now and again when it is finished. Thank you for stopping by. šŸ™‚

  1. Wow! It’s just gorgeous! Makes me wish I was a child again just so I could have my granny reading your books for me. šŸ™‚

    Check the dpi settings when you scan. šŸ™‚

    • I have my DPI set at 300 when I scan, which is the recommended setting. I am beginning to wonder if my problem might be with the program settings in Corel. If I print from AutoCadd then scan, my color is good. If I JPEG out from AutoCadd the colors take on a black tint. When I print from Corel, the hard copy is fine, but the scan copy comes out faded. Hmmm ???

      • Now that’s funny business. Play around with Corel’s settings and see what it does. That’s all I can advise. Sorry I can’t be much help here. šŸ™‚

        • No worries, I’m sure somewhere hidden deep in one of the menu settings, there is an answer to be found. I haven’t given up yet. Thanks for responding though and your attempted help. It is appreciated. šŸ˜‰

    • Thank you, Gilly. I appreciate your vote of confidence. I think I’m going to toss a few orple scenarios in here and there among some of my posts and photos. The orples and I appreciate your visit, as always. šŸ™‚

  2. I like your kite post. When I come to think of it I tried to make a kite, I mean from scratch, And it may have worked, i just cannot remember, and have no one to ask about. I remember my model rockets worked (also all from scratch), even the one that changes course, and started chasing us (my cousin and I) for awhile (and no it was not a drone!).

    Thanks for the post and the memories it brought up!

    • You are more than welcome, George. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience. I know sometimes I run into little things that jog my childhood memories, as well, so I’m glad to do it for you.

    • Thank you Gerry. I still have a few things to add to this drawing before it is finished. So this is an intermediate phase. I am cheating in a way, because I wanted to add a post today, but didn’t have time to get side tracked, so they you have it. šŸ˜‰ I do appreciate your stopping by, as well as your encouragement. Thanks. šŸ™‚

  3. Your attention to detail is wonderful. I like the fact that although there is quite a lot going on in the picture it still seems to have a lot of space in it. Now how does that work?
