Color-Sketch Towel 3

What is there not to like about this towel?  Just look at those gorgeous colors… Really!

Well, he needed eyes so I got to work….I like this eye enough…but that “philtrim” area [area between the nose and the upper lip….had to look that up…who knew?] was not working for me…at….all!


So….I erased the lower portion of the nose and redrew…and worked it down as best as I could.

Ahhh…the “over the shoulder” view….my favorite!!  If only I had bigger hands…I could hold more pencils.  It’s such a tweak-fest…this color sketching!

I really, really want to go in with my markers and straighten things up a bit.  Make things pop…but I’m being a good-girl and holding back.  It’s always best to save that part until the very end!  Of which, I’m not there….too much left to do on that head of wet hair!

I've been following you for a long time, but I'm always too busy scarfing down my breakfast and chugging my coffee to comment.

This post made me want to comment. It's just stunning!! I think you'd make an amazing children's book illustrator. So colorful yet realistic. Just mesmerizing.

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!
