The Fly….Redundant

This post is redundant…because the pictures aren’t going to be that different.  No Big Time changes going on….all little tweaks!! 

Trying to maintain water consistency as seen in the background.  Increased shading to the cap and the face.

Lane line time.  Totally ad-libed this.  Only after I started to color it in on top of the watercolor base did I notice I didn’t give the lane lines much perspective.  As in…..the alternating colors getting closer as they go into the distance.  Ugh!

Lots of shadows on the arms in the photograph. 


Toned down the right arm here….bringing in said shadows.  Not sure if I like it….I think the camera and lighting isn’t showing the drawing accurately.  Built up a lot of the water background.  Need to show some choppiness…..don’t know how yet!

Redundant or not, this is amazing! You do so much with colored pencils.

About Me

My photo
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!
