Toddler Two Dress….Ta-Done!

I could not resist taking a picture of these two Toddler dress girl drawings side by side.  They look pretty cute together!

Had super-major trouble with this thumb.  In the picture the child is holding sunglasses so her thumb is curving around a shape.  To draw in the object would’ve just confused everyone (mostly me) so I opted to curve in her thumb to her chest.  Not pleased with my rendition!

Ok, so….I cheated!  Things were going way...too…slow with the watercolor pencils so I had to finish things up (details in the feet, hand and clavicle) with regular colored pencils.  I needed the control and consistency.


The far left is the original picture from KK Childrens Designs….then my color-replacement….then my drawing.  If I could do it over again….I’d probably still change the dress to red…but leave the leggings white.  White is fun to work with, who’d have thought?

I think your paintings are amazing. I can't draw so I'm even more amazed that someone can take paint and make something look so real.

Thanks for sharing it with us!

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!
