Summer of Colour #5

After 3 attempts at this, I finally managed to finish something for this week. I don't know it its the colours, (not my favorite together), the bird image I was using or the Illustrator gods just really really wanted to try my patience. Either way it is finished, and I am happy with how it looks :)

I often laugh at my British friends and say they need to learn ENGLISH (grin). Mom is not Mum. Color has no U. What is it with you Brits and U? And a trunk is not a boot. A boot is not necessarily a Wellie. OK That was seriously meant to be a joke, so I hope you will take it as such. I would never say anything disrespectful, so I hope you know this was written in jest.

However, you would rather I commented on the lovely peahen than its colours. I was really impressed with the distinction and where you placed each colour for maximum effect and perceived shading.

BTW, my speller is telling me colour is spelled wrong. But I sure like how you used them, anyway.

lol I didn't take offense at all, probably because I am Canadian and it takes a lot to get under our skin ;) and thank you :) my spell checker actually is telling me colour is wrong too lol but I think thats because I have the American dictionary turned on and seems to be the only country who doesn't spell it with a u is America. its actually pretty interesting when you read up on it but I fine language fascinating :)

You created another beautiful bird, Jennifer Rose. I think it's a girl and a male is just trying to get her attention.
I'm German but I took on writing everything the American way years ago and don't waste the precious "u", lol.

helena said...

the black really makes the colours (note I am a fan of including a 'u' !) pop - love the haughty look of the peahen - they always seem snobby birds to me

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

thank you, and yep its a peahen :)

I've actually met a few German people who when they learned English adopted the American spelling of things, maybe make it easier to learn English without having to worry about silent letters?

Jennifer Rose Phillip said...

thank you :) yes they always look snobbish lol like the look down on everyone :p
