Swim Studies

It’s hot and humid right now in Atlanta and the best place to be is a swimming pool. I love swimming but struggle with some of the more advanced moves: diving and flip turns. Because I was not on swim team when I was a kid, I think have “adult” fears about hitting my head. I made a few colorful sketches in my art journal, hoping the act of drawing would help me better understand and appreciate the movement. I used colored pencil and gouache on an acrylic background.
