Horse Race….Show

Being inundated with Horse Racing activities these past couple of weeks it seemed perfectly natural to sketch a horse next.

Got my outline down…..then grabbed my watercolor paint mess to put a light color base down.

…..Yea, Yea….I know I said I don’t draw animals…but since their hair is so short, it’s almost like sketching skin.  Plus….I get to draw one of those colorful jockeys too Open-mouthed smile


I learned something new this year.  Every horse in a given position always wears the same color… #1… #5……..etc.  As you can tell, I am out of my element.

Just playing with those folds…..

The neat thing about sketching from a picture….is the ability change colors.  I’ll be making this horse a light brown instead of dark brown…Go Baby Go!

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!
