Continued with the hand a bit more. Used colored pencils to get that thumb bend. Reinforced some of the shadows in the 2 right fingers with watercolor.
It was time to work the top. If I can get this top right, I will love it….but that’s a big IF.
Had to mix a brown to best match the picture. Just lightly applied the first coat of brown watercolor paint.
Then I had to outline the rest of the floral image. This required focus….so I had to be patient and clear headed. Couldn’t doodle it in my “zoned-out” way.
Now, I have lots of color opportunities to turn to when things aren’t working as expected in a part of this drawing/painting.

- 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!
