Horse Race….Show2

It’s always best for me to draw whatever is in the same color family together.  After I finished the green Horse Saddle liner, I moved up to the green arm band.  All in colored pencil.

Not quite done with the arm band…but was ready to tackle that top.  I just wasn’t feelin’ it for colored pencils for the top….but what I was feelin’ was watercolor pencils.  I love the vibrancy of my pink watercolor out of the tube.  Got a little carried away with applying it to the arm folds. Then backed off for the shoulder and back sketching.

I’m going to have to go in and extract a lot of that color on the right side of the goggle straps because I’ve made it appear that the helmet is soft, which it isn’t.


I picked up a new trick in class…’s to apply that watercolor vibrant pink in little dabs.  I like it that way.  Next I’ll be dabbing in vibrant blue.

I cannot wait to get started on the jockey’s white pants…..For some reason, drawing white clothes is fun….who knew?

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!
