I have a new sketch to share with you all tonight! I have decided to create a series of witches with fruits and outfits based off of those fruits. Fruits are so beautiful and delicious. I find their colors, textures and shapes very inspiring, so I can't wait to design outfits to reflect that. I also have many fall and Halloween themed witches, so I thought it might be fun to fill out my portfolio with paintings featuring witches in a whole different way.
For my first witch in the series, I decided to feature strawberries! I love their pinky-red color, bright green leaves and the texture of the seeds. They are also very yummy! This cute witch, dressed in all her strawberry themed garb, is perched atop a gorgeous strawberry. I will add a background when I create the lines in Photoshop. I plan on creating a stripe design with a scalloped/lace type effect on the top and bottom with some polka dots. I should start on those lines very soon. I hope you all like the first witch in the series!
I will also be having a naming contest for her! If you would like to participate, please post your name suggestion below. You can post as many names as you like and you can also post if you've won a contest of mine previously. I always choose the name that I feel suits the piece best regardless if you have won before or not. The person that suggests the name I pick will win a 5x7" print of the finished piece! Thanks so much to all who participates. I plan on announcing the winner as soon as I post the digital line version which should be fairly quickly. I'm going to have a lot of time over the holiday weekend to work on her, so make sure to get your names in!
