Horse Racing….Place

Started in on the pant folds….I always forget how to draw them until I stumble around a bit.

I’ll need to go in and darken the pants/folds on the bottom part of the leg to make it more realistic.

I had to bring in shadows/ contour so I blended a little red and blue into my light brown paint.  The cool thing about painting is blending!!  I didn’t need to buy a new tube of darker brown….I could just blend and make do.

The nice thing about watercolor is that some of the pigment can be removed.  The helmet was too soft looking and when the pigment was evened out it looked much better.

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!
