Yea, Yea, I know it’s not Saturday…but I started this drawing on Saturday, so that qualifies!
Above, is the inspiration picture for this drawing. Found on pinterest, but the website [here], doesn’t take you to the artist. So I don’t know who to give credit to for this.
Contour drew everyone in….and embellished where I could.
My favorite combination: Markers and watercolor. Markers for the skin and the rest watercolor.
Just tried to make the colors sloppy….and swirly. I wanted some white space to show thru.
Added a winter hat to the guy (he turned out to be my favorite in this), and made the lady on the left give the Louisville sign.
Soon, I got to the details….the fun and flowery details. What really makes this work is when I keep things loose. Meaning……keep some circles open, let the lines overlap.
Had to do something with those mouths!! They were huge! I opted out of drawing lips…lips are Hard! I went in and made all the mouths gray. Well, big mistake… everyone looked half-dead. So then, I went over the gray and gave everyone white teeth. Teeth so white it would make any dentist proud!
Just fun!! I love how the blue lady looks like Janis Joplin…..too funny

- 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!
