Cartoon Squiggle Art Drawing Colored Pencil

Here is another lady with a hat, but more in my style. I’m still working on light and shadow and I can see now that there is some confusion going on in the arms.

The colors are based on violet with red and blue shifting their emphasis in the hat and blouse. I used marker as a base and colored pencil for shading.

Who knows where squiggles run, but this woman looks happy to be going there.

Softball may be over in the colder climes, but squiggles play year round.

Lynne: I was thinking about Christmas when I drew this. I used the complement pair red and green and tossed in the yellow softball to show the changes from red through orange to yellow.

Most of this is done with marker. It’s much less forgiving than pencil and is more difficult for me to get the nuances of shading. That is one of my goals for 2012–to learn more about shading with less fuss.
