Well, the crabs were already captured…it was time to capture faces!
What an evolution! I think I finally started to mold the face correctly by #6. I nailed number six. Looks just like my son…but he was 14 when he looked like this. I had to continue erasing and applying. Funny..after I fixed one problem, I’d step back and realize that I erased a “good” part of the sketch….you know the part that resembled him. I guess I could blame my eraser girth.
Number 9-10: After I was shown in class that erasers do work on colored pencils….I felt much more secure! Haha! I’m glad I was able to lower the eyes and shorten the nose.
My blonde son looks like a red-head here. Oh well!
For my first colored pencil face, I’m ok with this. Yes…didn’t replicate it exactly, but he looks like himself (more or less). When the paper starts pilling up on me, that is a sure sign to be done with this already. That’s how I know to stop!
Happy Mothers Day everyone!

- 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!
