crosscountry skiing

Here is a drawing I did that is based on several miniature watercolours I have done on the same theme. I draw them using "paint" in Windows95. One of the things I like to do is save it as a BMP, change it into a JPEG and then change again into a GIF. Often, the JPEG distorts the colours in a cool way. Note the difference between numbers 1 and 2. Number 1 was changed directly into GIF. Dull, isn't it?

  3. I found a very cool site (free!) www.vrl.com/Imaging/filters.html (alas it is now evaporated into the ether) that allows one to alter drawings more.
    I selected "charcoal" for the following drawing:
