The making of a DIVER….drawing style. This only took me one year to complete! First post here back in Feb 2014.
I started out having the diver in a blue suit.
Then in March after my daughters college Swim & Dive championship….I decided to make the suit fit her team colors. Wasn’t sure where I was going with that choice, but it seemed the right one at the time.
After putting the drawing aside for a few months….I’d pull it out for a day or two and darken the colors.
Then I’d forget about it for awhile.
I think I figured out why I slacked off so much…..I was only working with 2 colors….Skin-tone and Green. And boredom set in.
I even pulled out my anthropologie swim glass to keep my motivation up! It seemed to help
Since these babies can start taking over a room fast, at 22x30 inches. I kept the framing simple. Purchased a premade frame during the half off sale and framed it without the mat. She’s not my proudest piece…but I’m glad that she is done. I must say, if I drew a diver that I knew then I’d feel differently about this piece. But I gotta practice somewhere and my photography skills are a bit weak

- 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!
