Warhol….Watered Down


I enjoyed doing the first Warhol style drawing, so I thought I do another.

I wanted to use a different color pallet….jewel tones.  Teals, blues, purples, pinks. 


The initial pink was Way-Too-Strong, so I went in and took a lot of the watercolor pigment off (watered it down).  Which ended up being the plan for the entire picture.

Apply the watercolor strong initially, then take it off.  I liked how the pigment remained dark at the borders.

I ended up putting a lot more detail into the face….which may not have been the best choice.

But it was an interesting choice.


This picture kind of grows on me, if I don’t expect it to look like the original.

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!
