Horse Racing….Place…Still

I evened out the horse color with a larger brush and a darker brown.  Which now means I have to “replace” the shadow lines.

Being super frustrated with my inability to draw the horses body consistently, I had to concentrate on something else.  I will need to go in and make the eye area more pronounced.  Glad this part came easier.

I love working in my kitchen….It gets lots of sun….all…day…long.  Natural light is always the best!

This is pretty much the standard look when I work…..the hard part is grabbing the correct pencil.  I’m surrounded by dozens of watercolor pencils mixed with even more regular colored pencils.  And there is a purpose to each.  At this point, when I’m doing more of the detail work…guess which pencil I grab?  Yep, the regular colored pencil one.


Now for the game……Can you spot the differences between the two pictures?

This is looking great! At first I was worried because I thought that was a bowl of cereal on your work (!!) but then I realized it's your pencil shavings.

I like seeing where you work, and all the supplies you use.

Hi Janet...too funny about the cereal...yea, I'd be worried too :D

Over from jenniebellies. That's fantastic! You are much braver than me drawing horses (yikes! Just the thought of doing a horse makes me come out in a cold sweat). Looked at some of your recent posts and love that you've been colouring in some of Janet's pictures...what a lovely collaboration. You did a great job on them.

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!
