Illustration Friday - "Hats"

© Kathleen Rietz
A preliminary line drawing is all I have time for this week. I do hope to develop the composition and turn it into a painting when I find time to illustrate again. It is a grandmother and baby going for a train ride, both wearing their hats. I have to think about what she will be looking at outside the train window...
