Scribble Picnic: Door

Art by Tammie Lee ©beautyflows.com, color by me
This week's Scribble Picnic is 'door.'  For a change, I colored an art of Tammie Lee's. You can see the uncolored version at her blog here. It was a good experience coloring someone else's artwork. Of course there is one downside which is that I cannot change the drawing because it's not mine and I wouldn't want to ruin an artist's work. But it was fun to choose colors though I keep adding and removing colors because I have a habit of using too many. The colors are added digitally using Adobe Photoshop. 

~ Check out Tammie's colored version over here ~

I just saw Tammie's version today after I finished my coloring. What do you think? Which version do you like better? I'm thinking Tammie's version is better because it has more textures when compare to mine and I like textures plus she used real paint while mine is digital.

  1. The colors you chose make this wonderfully magical Lissa!

    You are so good at coloring digitally. I know nothing about that. Because the original was done on CP, textured watercolor paper, yours does have a feeling of watercolor paint as well.

    I just noticed that you and I did opposite colors. Where you did cool I did warm and vice versa, except for the fungi, we chose similar colors for them.

    Your white lights are part of the magical feeling for me.
    So fun to see your version!

    Happy May to you!

    1. I was using a lot of warm colors until I got to his hair and then decided his hair somehow should match everything around him - like he was the cause for the leaves to change to a cool blue instead of the dark orange I had before.

      the white lights which I call 'sparkles' was a last minute addition because I thought I wanted a winter scene & was going for snow falling but I decided the sparkles are better and winter was not.

      thanks again 'lending' me your art.

      have a lovely day.

  2. I love them both, and agree with Tammie that they both have a watercolour look. Yours is cool, hers is warm, they are really quite complimentary.

    1. I did enjoyed coloring Tammie's art. I think I might even ask other people if I can color their art.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

  4. What a great way to share artwork. I love them both. But the colors you used are especially nice. Love the background, and the tree. And a cute little door indeed. You did bring it to life!!

    1. I actually started with warm colors but somehow ended up with cool ones, which happens all the time.

  5. Both are nicely colored, each with its own feeling. It certainly does look like he is responsible for the leaves turning blue here. Brrr!

    1. yes, that is the idea, the little guy is the one giving the tree life but the tree also gives him life.

    1. cool and warm colors, yep, that is what I thought when I saw Tammie's color version after I was done with my colors.

  8. I love the blue leaves - that in itself is magical. Truly, they both are beautifully done.

    1. I have a habit of using tons of blues so I guess that's why this ended up in blues.

  9. Lissa,
    What an interesting idea. I always wondered how to digitally paint. I can't see to get the brush to drop the paint where I want it. Great job. I'll be popping over to Tammie's now. I love her little door.
    Blessings

  10. I LOVE ow you did this for Tammie and seeing the differences between the two pieces. Your is decidedly a cooler colour palette as already noted above. I love how you chose a wintry type scene. Both are great for their own reasons. I love the texture that comes with natural pieces but love the sky and snow you have too. It is perfect.

    Thank you so much for doing this, Lissa. Sooo intersting.

    Sorry to be visiting later than I would normally though. Also, btw, I did go ahead and write a post to explain the reasons for the bumpers stickers on my last piece, should you care to see that. Did not leave the option for anyone to comment as it's just an FYI but hopefully interesting enough for the casual reader. :)

    1. like I said in other comments, I did start with warm colors that somehow changed. I do like the winter scene and it wasn't even cold when I change to the blue. I think when you work on a piece, your mind goes back and forth until it settles on a decision.

      thanks for coming by, have a lovely day.

  11. How fun! You did a wonderful job painting it in, Lissa. Very magical. :)

    1. I did have fun coloring Tammie's art piece, when I work with other people's art (this was the only second time) somehow it just seems like I might have been a bit more careful with choosing the colors and I was also trying to do things a bit differently because I don't quite feel I can work in the same way as with my own art. you know what I mean?

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day
