Serendipity

Do you ever do something on accident and then wish you knew how you had done it?

I drew this tree in pen and scanned it.  I had plans to color it with a digital watercolor sort of flair, but I did something wrong, and this is what happened.

So, then I had to figure out how I had done it.  But I didn’t want to lose the tree, so I saved it and got to work on a new fish.

And I did it again.  Sort of.

In the tree, I think I had the paint brush set to Color Dodge, so it turned my black lines green, brown, etc.  In the fish, I had the layer set on Linear Dodge, so it kept the lines a little dark and just added a bit of color.

Not sure how to turn this particular sort of art into a children’s storybook…but a children’s poetry book?  Yes.  And do I have some poems in the works?  Yes.

Will I publish them here?  No.  I’ve read that if you publish your writing online, some publishers will not accept it because it’s already been published.

And now you know.
