The Fly….Fears

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!

OOooo that water color would be scary.. :)).......the water in the foreground seems a little dark but then i glanced at the original picture and it IS that way. I can't wait to see what all you do with it! Hugs! deb

Thanks Deb!! I think I've made a mistake thinking I do the water with colored pencils! May have to shelve this for a bit.

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!
