Color-Sketch Towel

Time to revisit an older drawing.  I did this Doodled face from a picture of my son (taken 10+ yrs ago) for the Sketchbook Project almost 2 years ago.  I was experimenting with watercolor pencils and doodling shapes to contour the face [inspired by Rebecca Anthony].  It was fun and I liked the way this turned out.  But that picture is now long gone and since this is one of my favorite pictures…it gets to be color-sketched next.

Started out trying to duplicate the texture of the towel….as you can see, with the very tiny circles.

Then I gave up on the tiny-circle effect and just tried to get those folds right.  I know I’ll be working more on that left side, cuz that fold just isn’t that deep. Ugh!

I have to admit…that I really like sketching loved ones (or people I know).  Because as I go thru the motions, I start to think about them.  I remember things I may want to ask them next time I see them.  Or I sit back and feel blessed that they are doing well.  Figuring their path out.   Happy, Healthy, Productive!  What more can a proud mom ask for?

About Me

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!
