Part 6…. Watercolor Pencils

image

Finally got the guts to color in the suits of my sketch drawing! After doing a practice page, and playing with a pattern for the suits, I was ready. Since, I decided just to make the suits similar, not exact, this took a lot of pressure off.

I want to thank everyone who commented about what to use for the suits. Markers or Watercolor pencils? The majority voted for Watercolor pencils. I think the watercolor pencils turned out okay, lots more play in the pencils than with the markers. More blending ability. Too bad, I didn’t duplicate this picture and set aside one for markers! That would’ve been a fun comparison.

Thanks again for supporting me through the steps ( Friends, Procrastination, Progress, Knees & Elbows, Big Head) of this sketch drawing. It was fun, and I plan on doing another one sometime soon. Love using pictures for this.

Oops, I responded to the "big head" post first, not realizing you'd finished the suits. Psyched to see the suits in watercolor, soft and flowy. Fun! Will this be framed?

I am very much in awe of your shading ability - I think this is so well done :-)

By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
