Plein Air….Hands and Tools


Just like any other trade or skill….even artists use tools to help them perform their task. 
I used this compass to help me make even wedges for for the above color grid watercolor.


And the tools I used here were gray & black watercolor, a ruler and a black micron pen.


I bought these three hands a few years ago at Hobby Lobby and painted them white for my Gallery Wall.  I was looking for something to watercolor each day when I was participating in the July World Watercolor Month daily challenge.  So I picked these quirky hands.

When I was stuck on what to draw in the July daily challenge, I drew some of my Art Supplies…because who doesn’t love art supplies?  And I especially like drawings of art supplies!


And to close here is another oldie…. a collegiate swimmers hand.  She was a team-mate of my daughter’s…a very good backstroker.  This was how her hands entered the water…….So Graceful!

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!
