Kristi- the Chameleon……She figured out what her parents expected, did it….she figured out what her teaches expected, did it….her coaches, then her Boss. She’s an achiever, some would say an over-achiever. But this is the way she operates, she really likes to please and wants to help or be on the winning team. She’s smart, that’s for sure. Now, that she’s gotten older and has warranted a decent amount of respect, you’d think she’d be okay with that. But she’s a little lost because she’s not sure what she expects from herself, for herself right now.
I think we all know a Kristi or two. We often just look at them and think of what they can do for us. Which is totally understandable. Some people are born leaders and some are better at being lead. I think Kristi is of the latter group and there is nothing wrong with that. With a little time and maturity, these people figure it out. To be really good at something takes sacrifice, and a lot of it unseen. And how wonderful for these people to know that if they really want something, they have it within themselves to achieve it, learn it, do it! I applaud that amount of focus and discipline!
Enough about my life views, already!! Back to this drawing…..I really would like to do a watercolor tie-dye so I searched and searched on the web and didn’t find what I was looking for unless I want to tie-dye coffee filters or popcorn. BUT I did find this little instructional video about the various techniques for Watercolor Pencils. It’s a quick view, I think I learned a few things.
Here’s the daylight picture version of Kristi. The colors are better here. My scanner seems to have trouble with the lighter, pastel type colors. It doesn’t recognize them. I probably just need to go in a play with the setttings. But, grabbing the camera is so much easier.
Below, my entire bird family. Instead of clicking the links to see all the birds, I thought it would be fun to show them to you all together!
Pic above looks a little squishy, don’t know what happened.
And to think, not one bird is exactly like the other! Ahhhhh, individualism! The foundation of America!
