Toddler One….in Watercolor

I had to take a break from the figure series cuz I was a bit bored.  I wanted to continue with the same format and toddler’s in cute clothes fit the bill.

Painting in watercolors has helped speed up the application of color onto the canvas.  But after the blocking out has been done….the details are done in watercolor pencil.  So it’s really fifty/fifty…drawing-to-painting.

Started on the easy stuff first…cuz it was confidence building time.

The original dress had a black background….but I didn’t like it….so I changed it.  The style and appearance of the pattern in the dress leads itself toward a flatter image…..this should be easier to duplicate……I hope!

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!
