12/8 Color Challenge - Birdies


12/8 Color Challenge - Birdies

I saw the cutest watercolor birds on pinterest and wondered if I could get some of the same effect in GIMP. Well, not quite, but every other minute, I'm pretty pleased with this. The rest of the time I hate it, but anyway, here it is. I was looking for a good quote for this and remembered this poem (it's only a fraction). I'm rereading James Herriot's series right now, so it's fresh in my mind

I used:

    Your birds are sweet! :)
    This is really lovely Aggie. The birds are so sweet and I love the deep rich chocolate browns behind them. Pretty framing too. Great job!
    Oh, Aggie! This is just beautiful! The brown background makes the birds really stand out. I love that poem and I love the Herriot books too!
    Amazing! You really captured the watercolor effect and that's not easy. Good job!
    I like the effect on the birds! They look great to me. They especially stand out against the dark brown background. Lovely poem!
