Diver Drawing….going green


It’s a good thing that I have wireless earphones because I’ve been in mode #3 since yesterday afternoon, enjoying this song from Despicable Me and doing my thing drawing!


I’m past the days of clearing off the dining room table each night before dinner and cooking.  This type of upheaval lasts for weeks!

You’d think that this type of sketching would be easier…..I like to draw people and it’s not like this is unfamiliar territory.  But I’m finding the same problem I had with my Horse Racing sketch with the main body of the horse.  Ya gotta keep that color consistent in a large area. And drop or add color so slightly to create the correct illusions.

Added yellow watercolor over the blue.  Then when it was dry continued on with green colored pencils to change the suit color to green.


Still much more to do, but at least she’s looking more the way I want her.

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!
