#4 A Moment in Time

For A Moment in Time, I thought of all of the pictures of me in the air pole vaulting.
 The picture I chose from Indoor Nationals had an busy background of lights and rafters. I wanted to "freeze time" in the picture so I decided to get rid of the busy background and go for something softer which put more empasis on the figure. I had a little bit of trouble making the water color look how i want it. I need to practice water color some. 
I did the body in stippling because there were a lot of highlights and shadows. The hardest part was getting the dark values to be dark with just tiny dots. I really liked using the pens with the very small tips because they made really tiny dots.
