My absolute favorite thing to draw….is swimmers! I almost didn’t attempt this picture…because it’s so wide…..and it’s hard to see the details in the body. But my Art teacher really liked the composition which encouraged me.
I want to do this right….so I put the watercolor pencils away and re-acquainted myself with those beloved colored pencils.
It’s like coming home!! Drawing on this illustration board is sweet, paper type makes a huge difference!
I plan on doing the water in watercolor. The initial bottom layer of the figure was a watercolor wash. Much faster working with a wash than starting off with colored pencil as the base. Thumbs up for that trick

- 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!
