There is a pretty little hobby farm near our home. The old farmhouse has been restored, and surrounding it is a menagerie of goats, donkeys, miniature horses, and other critters. The owners have parked an old wagon along the road in front of the house. The contents of the wagon change with the seasons – spring flowers, summer produce, and in the fall – pumpkins. Hence, the inspiration for this colored pencil drawing.
This was done with my portable drawing kit while sitting in the library on lunch breaks. The support is 9″ x 12″ hot-pressed watercolor paper (Cartiera Magnani Portofino). I used Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.
