Time for the background build. The white in the sketch has been protected by rubber cement so that I can keep it white.
Had to keep increasing the amount of color in the water.
Got home and rubbed that rubber cement off. Also, since the background was darker, I had to enhance the figure. It’s such a balance!
I really have no idea what I’m doing here. I purchased some turquoise colored pencils because there is a lot of turquoise in that water. This may be over my head deciding to do colored pencils on top of the watercolor. My nature goes toward the details…(you know… like I see the trees not the forest). But I think the only way for me to make this work is to i.m.p.l.y. Imply the shapes and the color! Oh Boy!

- 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!
