I am experimenting with a series of 20th century period pictures. Today I did this picture of a 1920s woman on illustration board with Faber-Castell Pitt art markers and Prismacolor markers. I did a little research on 1920s dresses, hats, and street lamps, and realized I really need to brush up on my art deco! So much possibility there for incorporating designs and colors into illustrations! I love the style.
I drew this scene from the 1930s about three weeks ago. I share it here for comparison, and to begin to gather my series…..
