Strawberry Queen, Oils Work in Progress
1949 Strawberry Queen
16" x 20"
Work in Progress
I have this old black and white photo of the Queen, Patsy, for the 1949 Strawberry Festival. The festival is held annually and in 1949 the Queen was from my dad's strawberry patch.
Still have people and some background to block in as well as correct grass colors. I will work around the key figure for a day or sa while the paints set up. Right now I'm not very pleased with the way the large tree looks so may change its shape just a bit. It is challenging to work on the Queen's face which is a little over an inch in size.
