Watermelon Party. Day 1
I purchased a copy of this Watermelon Party picture (my title) from a great curator of vintage photos, his blog is here: Could it be Madness-this?
I am taking a great many liberties with it, as you can see. I have changed the background and simplified the lines a great deal. I've changed the tones to pinks and greens, because I want to carry those watermelon colors all throughout.
I am trying to paint the tiny portraits of the watermelon eaters with a certain degree of fidelity, even if the palette is changed.
