I had mentioned a while back that I have another bunch of Art Impressions stamps waiting to be inked up. Well here is the first one. This is Gordon Golfer. Many, MANY years ago I worked for Gordon's Jewelers and one of my co-workers was an older lady who was divorced. She had an uncanny ability to spot golfer customers whom she referred to as "golfin' fools". I think her ex may have been one. hee hee Anyway, her term has stuck with me all these years. Not sure if Gordon qualifies for the "fool" part, but he's definitely a golfer.
I googled golfer images to see what kind of clothing to put on him and it seems that sadly the iconic plaid golfing pants are a thing of the past. So sad....NOT! LOL I decided to keep Gordon in the classic though, so I set out to figure out how to color plaid. There are several tutes out there, but they weren't quite what I was looking for until I found this one. Her coloring is amazing! My first attempt was okay, but I didn't have the right white pen. This second attempt looks much better. The plaid is a combination of Copics, Sharpie, Faber Castell, and Prismacolor pencils. It's not perfect and I need more practice, but I love how it looks. Here's a close up of ole Gordon.
