Well, it’s been about a week since I sketched….and I was driving everyone around me crazy. So, off I went into my “someday stash” of inspiration pictures.
Started this with a watercolor wash. I think this helps to add dimension to the colored pencil portion. Granted….it’s non-erasable so I have to go light.
I would’ve preferred not drawing a face since those are such a challenge. But lots of the face is hidden here and since it’s not someone I know, the little variations aren’t going to bug me so much.
Every time I start a sketch, I get overwhelmed. But…..it’s just a bunch of sections. If I can keep that in mind…I will enjoy this.

- 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!
