With the firm command of draughtsmanship acquired during her training in Paris, Madge Tennent transitioned to smaller works on paper in the early 1940s and continued the practice through the end of her career. The earliest of these were sketches of Hawaiian girls sent with Red Cross care packages during World War II, rendered on newsprint or butcher paper and bundled with sundries and a note of encouragement from the artist. When peace returned to the islands, Tennent began to explore new media, such as watercolors and pastels, eagerly leveraging them to depict her treasured subject: the elegant, captivating, and majestic wahine.
