In fact, it is! Having President's Day off allowed me to spend some time really working on my watercolor technique. I finished two pieces today. One of them I'll show you below, the other will have to wait until Sunday! I'll give you a little hint, though:
After my *secret* piece, I thought about how fun it would be to try to replicate something from all of those back-issues of women's magazines I've been buying off eBay, recently. I picked this one, since I thought it looked "whimsical," and it's been REALLY windy here the past few days.
Now, why would I care if it was whimsical, you ask? Because! A recent commenter directed me toward his weekly, whimsical competition. It's called Whimsical Wednesday, and each winner is crowned Wizard of Whimsy. I love it! How could I not participate??
SO. Without further babbling AKA ado, I present (whimsically, of course!) ...
Hand-drawn (looking at the March 1926 | Woman's World cover, of course) and watercolored by yours truly. My THIRD effort with the watercolors... and, I must say, a vast improvement over my first!
My favorite part? The dead goose head hanging out of the boy's basket. I didn't even notice it was there until I had to draw it! Surprise!! Goose for dinner.
