Diver Drawing in Pike Position

I only started this Diver a month ago.

When I was all excited about watercolor and quite frustrated with my Ballerina due to my poor paper selection.

I’m learning that my watercolor application has it’s limits….had to continue on with colored pencils.

As much as I like the white background….I know I should start doing backgrounds.  Just applied a wash here of green & blue watercolors.

A close up view of the feet.

Some of that w/c pigment stains and is quite dark.  Trying to make this work for me.

Had to grab my graphite drawing b/c I was having a hard time figuring out those leg muscles.
And the other thing I need to figure out….is the suit.  I need to make it green, “it’s a team thing”.  Wish me luck Smile

About Me

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!
