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…..it’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?

- 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!
