The Girls

When I get into an artistic frame of mind, I tend to obsess on a certain theme. I was drawing and painting fruit, mostly pears, for a long time. Some of them decorate our dining room. Now, since I have been working on a children’s book, I found a way to work in the fruit I so admire. But I also need humans in my story.

I got up the gumption to do some sketches, and then I dove in. Here are “the girls,’ my first attempts at creating human characters in quite a long time. I have some bugs to work out-but I enjoy watching the parade of characters marching across my wall. I hope you enjoy meeting them. I used colored pencil and watercolor on cold press and hot press Arches.
