Growing up, I lived on a street with twelve houses on it. The street was surrounded by pastures and forest. You would think it would be a very lonely existence, however each house had at least two kids living in it. Our games of hide and seek took hours. There were so many of us, we would team up. In those days, there were no fences, so we would pick the backyards that were “in bounds”, and it was usually the size of a football field or larger. Those were the days.
I didn’t blend anything on this drawing. I wanted to keep it loose and really bring out the different textures with lines. A good example is the bushes in the background.
