Sketching a Swimmer Still

I am always amazed at the perception I have of a picture when I go to draw it.   Or I should say the “lack there of” of my perception.  Had to bring the line in on the lower arm…….very….very….much.

She looks like a “he” here.  Not good!  Not only was the chin drawn too perpendicular to the water, the nose was all wrong too…..oh yeah….and the googles….and the ear.  Must I continue?

I think I have snatched a bit of the expression here, finally.  I have not captured all of the intensity in the face yet…but at least it’s better than it was.  Granted….I did like that first face in the previous post….but….it was someone else’s face.  Haha

About Me

My photo
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!
