New beeswax collage

The fish are color copies of 19th-century zoological illustrations (copyright free), which I altered in Photoshop to an indigo-and-white color scheme.  First, change to Sepia (found on the Hue/Saturation menu).  Then use the “Invert” command (on the Adjustments menu) to change to indigo.  Saturation can be adjusted after that to your liking.)

Also, just for fun — here’s a scribble drawn on a tablet.  I find scribbling so freeing, relaxing, and playful.  Don’t do it often enough!  It gets creative juices flowing.
