The Other Side of My Easel: Whimsy Sisters (part 1)

Hello again Creative Friends!

Today I would like to introduce the first in a series of illustrations I call Whimsies.

Whimsies are my take on quirky, make-believe folks that come to life in my mind and live in the pages of my sketchbook! 🙂

Whimsies are a lot of fun to conceive of, draw, and paint because I am limited only by my imagination—there basically is no wrong way to draw a Whimsy!

So without further ado…

Let me introduce “Penney”—one of the three “Whimsy Sisters.”

“penney”

Penney is a sweet girl. One of three girls in the family, she doesn’t like fighting or arguing with her two older, rather bossy, sisters. Instead she much prefers things to be civilized and beautiful. Birds and animals are her friends. She has by far the most beauteous heart and countenance of the three, though she would never say that about herself, and she brings sunshine wherever she goes.

Let’s take a peek at how I created Penney: 

Pencil drawing and initial watercolor wash

Secondary washes and color palette

Added shadowing and detail

I hope you enjoyed meeting Penney!
I plan to introduce her sisters in upcoming posts.

Until then, make time for your imagination.

Have fun!
