Study on Beatrix Potter

I’ve always admired the work of Beatrix Potter.  She paid attention to detail, and managed to add a human touch to the animals in her stories that preserved their natural looks without giving them a frightening resemblance to humans with animal heads.  She was a rare success in a time when women weren’t considered equals in the business world, and she managed to become independent, much to her surprise, through the sale of her children’s books.  39

 

I have drawn a house from a painting, and a rooster from pen and ink.  Both of the original works appeared to have been quick works, perhaps sketches.  This made them much easier to draw, as I don’t believe I would do any of her works justice.40
