Swimmer Sketch…Basic


Yea!  I’m done with this….it’s like the Kenny Rogers song the Gambler…."You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, Know when to walk away and know when to run”

The cap and letters turned out better than I anticipated.  Which was good.

It looks halfway decent here.

Now that water….Ugh!!  I just couldn’t see it!  This is where I folded ‘em and walked away.  I need massive instruction on water drawing.


Creative license was used for the lane lines.  Otherwise, I’d still be drawing and I’d never get this picture done.

I think it’s time for color!! Haha

maybe we can have a visit with Mona and she can give you some of the water technique (she is nearby)

I think your work is wonderful. Keep expecting more of yourself and you will never quit learning.

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! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
