Watermelon Woman

Watermelon Woman
Water colors and Ink
Inspired by photo in
Conde Nast Traveler
I instantly loved this photo of a woman selling her watermelon slices that appeared in Conde Nast Traveler....a great resource for inspiration.  The photo is filled with patterns from the watermelons to the clothing she is wearing.  All of that attracted me to want to capture her.  I exaggerated her hands to indicate that she is a hard working woman....I can't help but wonder what her face might look like.  The photo was from an article on an area of Mekong, in Southeast Asia.  Watermelon anyone?
