Wow!  It’s been about 12 days since I last posted something here….that’s what happens when I go off and play! Haha. 
If I really had my act together I’d prepare some posts ahead of time and have them preset to post….but that’s if I had my act together.

I was able to sketch a bit while out on vacation. Which was good. I woke up early one morning and got a good 3+ hours of sketch time in…undisturbed! Coffee pot full, view of the beach out front and the bay out back….Heaven!

Just before I left on vacation one of my friends approached me about my open-offer to sketch a “picture for practice”.

So, I did the grunt work at home (scanning, enlarging, templating the picture) before our trip.

The head angle in the picture is not straight on… go figure!


Still need to shade in around the face which will help to unflatten it. I’m always so tentative!

Candid photography!  Usually I love it but this may prove a bit challenging!   I had to extract the subject out….then enlarge him about 300%.  I think I’ve lost lots of details to the guy due to the smaller image….my imagination will have to play a part to make this work.  

It’s teacher-help-me-please time!

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
