So….I brought the drawing outside thinking I could spot where I need to focus.
Then, I was told…. “just work on it upside-down”. Amazing how this view helps. We don’t assume so much when working this way.
Time to work on the nails. Not as hard as I thought it was going to be…..just kept things in the same skin tone.
There are wrinkles in the wrist…which I have not duplicated well here. The thing so challenging about hands is…not only do we have to show the veins but the tendons too.
Since I’m mostly done….I outlined with my very fine marker.
I’m so ready to get this off my plate. Yes…it was a challenge….Yes…I enjoyed it…but after looking at this for thirty days….I stopped seeing it’s uniqueness. I also became very aware of what I couldn’t change…couldn’t replicate well.

- 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!
