Went to class and it was suggested that I dull down the pants some.
I had to get the instructor to clarify what she meant by “dull down”. Go figure…it’s to bring in the opposite color…you know…mute it a bit. With blue I use orange cuz that’s the opposite on the color wheel.
Here ya go….the evolution of the jeans. As you can see, it’s not true photo-realism because I get to embellish, change the color and shape. I think that’s the fun part…the interesting part. I think I’m liking how the jeans turned out. More vibrant I think.
I’m getting more and more comfortable with my “wing-it” interpretations. I had no idea how to portray the sleeve folds.
This is about as done as it’s going to get. May go in and sharpen up some edges. What a fun piece to work with. I like the size. I told my instructor…..I would like to go even larger…..Now wouldn’t that be interesting….doing a life size piece?

- 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!
