I could not wait to get into my new box of prismacolors! They look so nice and neat this way….trust me….it won’t last!
Needed to balance out the jeans. I knew it needed to be dark so I went straight in with the orange (opposite of blue on the colorwheel). On top of the orange I used blue. This will darken the area….neutralize it.
I was getting frustrated with my attempts at darkening my shadows. It just wasn’t going anywhere.
Apparently….I forgot a step….I was in such a hurry to use those pretty pencils that I forgot to use my w/c pencils!! It’s the watercolor pencils that really helped me darken the darks. Where was my head?
Still much more to do….getting to be a rather long blog-post series! Sorry

- 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!
