Sunglass Saturday


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 Smile

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!
