Ballet in Watercolor….still trying

Ball7

Yes, I’m still trying to stay in brushes only. 

Ball8

So far…so good.

Ball9

I always forget that when I’m having trouble I should change my view….flip the pic!

Ball10

This is not a fun part….putting the shadows in around the toes.  I have since gotten rid of the big wrinkle in the big toe……will redraw in the correct direction!  haha

Ball11

And this is what my dining room table looks like these days!

Ball12

I’m gonna try something different with this drawing….IF it works I’ll post….IF not this is probably the last you’ll see of this puppy!

We always forget the price in pain and disfigurement that a ballerina pays. You are capturing it.

Hi Sandra, Hi Trece!! Yea, those poor ballerinas.....I guess each physical discipline has a price to pay....to pay for excellence :)

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!
