Kris Kringle’s Kitty II Postage Stamps
Kris Kringle’s Kitty card on Zazzle
this was inspired by Arthur Rackham and the soft muted colours he used.
First I did the ink drawing on 9″×11″ sketchbook paper and then I coloured it in using paint shop which came with Windows. I take the circle pick a colour and that start filling in as though it were a paint brush. When I get an area shaded they way I like it…I sometimes cut and paste and repeat that section and then blend it to the other section with the same circle. I dont know what I’m doing and I’m too cheap to buy an expensive program for something that is just a doodly sort of hobby. My son says to download something called Gimp? Maybe I’ll look for it.
Oh! Except the background! I used the inner page of one of my Dad’s old books.
