Glass Bottles in Watercolor

Since I’ve never drawn an inanimate object…..or even a still life.  I thought it was about time.

I picked up these 5 glass bottles at Hobby Lobby a few years ago.  Clicked a pic of them on a cool January day in 2011….this is probably my favorite people-less picture.

I’m starting to get the hang of watercolor.  I did the wash first then I went in with the w/c pencils.  So much flexibility in these pencils….still learning it’s limits.

The nice thing about inanimate objects is the lack of perfection….I don’t have to be so exact!

I must’ve been avoiding something…..cuz I started to play Smile

Don’t worry that red bottle is not done…that interior line wobble is bugging me too.

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!
