Summer Blossom was a practice piece. I had originally intended to play around with an anime style of drawing per the request of a hospitalized friend who is really into anime. I received a lot of "how to draw Manga" books from him and I did this picture as a form of payment for them.
Of course I had done her in the summer time. Blueberries raspberries, and strawberries were in full force on the farm I had. The kids and I would visit the berries (okay, more than visit--yum!). However I spent time studying the colors and tried to incorperate them into this picture.
Summer is a sweet little fairy with a mischevious side. She was a fun little gal to draw in ink and crayola colored pencil. I matted her in black and set her in a metal black frame. She now belongs in a private collection.
