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!

- 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!
