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
I learned something new this year. Every horse in a given position always wears the same color…..red #1…..green #5…..orange#7…..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!

- 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!
