Here is the first look at a design I just finished for our community carousel project. Someone else designed all the wonderful animals but, they wanted me to design some historic figures that will stand around the inside area. Does that make sense? Anyway, this is the pioneer woman. Mrs Lemons. She was a postmistress. Next, up a local merchant.
There is no way I could have taken on this job if I had not been continuing to take a life drawing class every Wednesday evening. If you want to draw and paint people you have to know how they are put together.
I'll post a picture of the merchant as soon as I finish.
