Since I am trying to stay away from my pastels for a little while, I have been sketching ideas for watercolors and colored pencil. It has been hard to get back in the swing of things and coming up with great ideas, but this one popped up in my head. It’s an amish girl (of course) and I am trying to figure out what I want her to be doing in this picture. Is she doing laundry? Is she feeding the cows or the chickens? I really haven’t decided and that’s why she is still half drawn in pencil.
I don’t want this to be an overly done painting, just a couple of details and slight background with more focus on just the way her dress falls and the simple bun in her hair. A simple, little painting, but hopefully, beautiful regardless. I will post the completed picture as soon as I finish it. Hope you like the way it looks so far!:)
