Yoga Girl….Colorized

Posted this picture back in January with my Yoga Girl One post.


Brought in color.  I thought it would be cool to have a more batik looking outfit with a lot of color movement.    Watercolors can pull this off rather easily Smile

I thought I’d balance the red in her outfit with the opposite color….Green.  But it did not turn out well.  Much too dark.

I pulled up a lot of that green with a brush and water.  A unique element of working in this medium.

I like the mat better here, a lighter shade of green.


I stalled on this project for about a month because it was hair time.  I tend to do that a lot.  But what I really need to remember….is to keep the crown of the head’s hair darker, by putting many more lines (strands) in.

Last thing to do before completion is this hand.  It’s not watercolored yet, just showing the w/c pencil stippling now.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to blend this better for a more realistic impression.

My kitchen table!!  Soon to be cleared off…. close to completion….. Smile Smile Smile

Block Alphabet…..D…E…R


I’ve been drawing these Block Letters behind the scenes lately.  And since I’m a curious sort, I thought it was time I displayed them here!

All these flowers were hand drawn….that was the boundary.


I liked the look of the D on the black fabric…..they complemented each other Smile


The D is Done.


Then onto the E….


If you know sign language then hopefully you can recognize the letter the hand is making.


The boundary….was square background with paisley doodles.


Enough of the E.


Onto the R…..


Lots of Sharpies used here.


Fine line rainbows in this background.


Went into my fabric Stash and took a few pics.  I liked this one….Tie-Dye Dots


This one was too loud….Bright Stripes.


I also liked this one…..Wavy Stripes.

How about you?  Which letter appeals to you the most?

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!
