The Northwest has been graced with more sun than it’s legally allowed south of Vancouver, BC. Therefore, I’ve been stocking up with vitamin D by writing outside in my backyard. The glare it’s so distracting, the day so beautiful, the grass so green, I started playing with my cell phone camera. Then, once my skin had irremediably spotted all over, I went inside to retouch the pic with Paint.NET: slightly alteration of the light and the mere hint of ink sketch filter.
A recent picture showing my fabulous purple highlights. I used Paint.NET to soften the background and intensify the hair color.
Yesterday it was a great day. Italy won against Germany and advanced to the final on Sunday. Pax got its first review on Amazon and Goodreads. I decided to celebrate with purple highlights. Photo manipulation came later at night, when I was too excited to go to sleep.
This is me, with less color than usual and sketched with Paint.Net.
