Lori, (blu_ize)that is just amazing! Look at those ripples, you can see the swan glide, ...
(sign it, girl
Every pack has an ugly duckling,...here it is
Here is my first water attempt.
How did I do it?
1: looked at the photo
2: stared at the posterized one for an hour
3: bought a yummy handlotion,...oh now I cannot draw, greasy hands...
4: stared at the photo for another hour
5: bought an icecream... sticky hands...
After chickening out all morning and part of the afternoon, looking at the posterized version, I looked at the photo again, and suddenly it seemed approachable
I divided it into 5 parts that I thought were different, the circle ripples, and the left bottom corner, bottom right, upper right, upper left...
tried to get a feel for each part, at first worked very slowly, and then I forgot to pay attention, clicked off my brain, and just had fun. I am not sure that was the right thing to do, I suppose if you want a realistic looking drawing, maybe you need to be mindful till the end? I do not know.
the posterized version did help me decide which pencils to use,
maybe I will do it again by the end of the week
Yesterday morning I was considering taking up knitting again, but actually, this was fun.
