Something a little different....

My son's friend has a birthday coming up next month. He is a pro dirtbiker. So what to do! Well I decided to wing it...and by winging it I mean winging it. I took a picture of him practicing this week and went to work from there. I hand drew a picture of him. His dirtbike is orange so I wanted to bring only a hint of this to the image. I first drew the image in pencil and shaded slightly, then added a black marker to some areas. With 3 shades of oranges (using lyra pencils) I coloured in his bike. I then used blue slate and indigo blue to shade all around the image. Whew..it worked! The last time I ever drew anything was in my art class in grade 12....so I was so happy it worked.



I so hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  13. I have had house guests and have been a naughty commentator then blogger went down but I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on your recent makes. Every one of them is beautiful, Christine. I loved your Teddy Bo easel with the pop up figures and the cute picket fence, your little nurse with her glazed specs was super too. As for this one... wow, wow, wow! Stunning artwork! Stunning card! Well done you!
