Blonde Beauty….wash



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.

I Love, love, love the picture you"ve chosen! Pretty please may I get a copy of the picture as I would love to draw this lady too! I'm usually a flower person, but she's lovely....I also do a water colour layer before pencilling in! My email is on my blog: PennyB's Creative Adventures. THanks again, and I LOVE visiting your site-it's so inspirational!

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!
