Strawberry Queen Sketch
Another quick pencil sketch from a photo taken in 1948 of the Queen of the Strawberry Festival. Back then, candidates for Queen were selected to represent each strawberry grower's field or patch. At that time, strawberries were a good business. This queen represented my parents' field.
I didn't sketch in the background but wanted to get a feel for the shape/mass/values of the figure.
