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?

- 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!
