I draw a little girl in a green dress with dark pigtails now and then whom I call Agnes. Since finding my yellow 'tea stained' paper I've drawn her twice. I keep wanting to use her for a children's book perhaps, and have started to make her drawings animal/circus based.

|Agnes and the Bunny, pencil sketch.|
|Agnes and the Bunny, painted. As you can see I have to be careful this paper|
does not crinkle as the paint dries. I will have to keep to very light,
concentrated strokes in the future.

I'm not certain why Agnes plays the role of 'child' for many of my illustrations. I like the look of her certainly, and she has been around for nearly a year now.

days of her green dress and brown frock coat.
|Agnes and the Paper Dolls: Agnes was also one of the paper dolls|
I made this summer. Here she is next to Rory Rex.
I feel like Agnes hanging around is a good sign. Hopefully I can get her into a project and we can find out more about this little girl who calls my sketchbook home! I'm going to continue the circus paintings and see where she takes us.
Yo george, that girl has nice collarbones. tell her to hit me up. - TimReplyDelete
