the pier on the Kennebec

jen-on-pier-detailThe work on figure studies for the Kennebec Courthouse mural continues.  This woman is for the crowd scene on the pier.  There will be ships and cargo behind and other pier activity pertinent to life on the Kennebec.

The mural encompasses many centuries, the history of the river from earliest days to perhaps mid 20th century.  There is a lot of research in clothing styles and details of the setting…even down to ways people moved, gestures and such.  Different clothing restricts you in different ways.
