Hilda Otejekker practically grew up in luxury. Her parents were very rich so they bought her only the best clothing that money could get.
This watercolor sketch depicts Hilda as a little girl at the age of 8.
I got quite a few comments on the dress here. This dress is quite fancy with its frilly edges. It was chiefly based on some of my research into women’s fashions of the Late Victorian and Edwardian era.
Sketched with pencil, ink and watercolor, this came out better than I expected.
