Time to revisit an older drawing. I did this Doodled face from a picture of my son (taken 10+ yrs ago) for the Sketchbook Project almost 2 years ago. I was experimenting with watercolor pencils and doodling shapes to contour the face [inspired by Rebecca Anthony]. It was fun and I liked the way this turned out. But that picture is now long gone and since this is one of my favorite pictures…it gets to be color-sketched next.
Started out trying to duplicate the texture of the towel….as you can see, with the very tiny circles.
Then I gave up on the tiny-circle effect and just tried to get those folds right. I know I’ll be working more on that left side, cuz that fold just isn’t that deep. Ugh!
I have to admit…that I really like sketching loved ones (or people I know). Because as I go thru the motions, I start to think about them. I remember things I may want to ask them next time I see them. Or I sit back and feel blessed that they are doing well. Figuring their path out. Happy, Healthy, Productive! What more can a proud mom ask for?

- 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!
