These portraits are really watercolor sketches to familiarize myself to each of the ladies bone structure, skin tone, hair and especially their features. Some are far more easier to render than others, but they should all be considered quick sketches except, maybe, the last portrait where I spent a great deal more time on it.

|Rogue Girl - Watercolor|
I always thought "Rogue Girl" was a bit of rebel because of her name, but I've learned it's the name of a river nearby her which is still a wonderful name. She is such a sweet lady and I was delighted to have my first trade with her this year!
|Jenn - Watercolor|
|Nanner - Watercolor|
Speaking of Nanner and not making the right connection with arty names, for the longest time I thought of Nanner as this elderly lady, perhaps with some grandchildren, having fun making art. Well, she sure does have fun making art and it turns out she's this fun-loving, wonderful, hot-blonde who was just recently married. I look forward to more merry-art-making with her!
|Anita M - Watercolor|
Anita came all the way over from England to Artzona and she is lovely in person. I skipped the detail of her dress which was layered with different pink flowery fabric and looked like something from Nordy's. It turns out, she just quickly sewed some frocks up for her visit to the States. It was fun having "Cadillacs" with her and I hope she returns next year.
|Riley - Watercolors|
This is actually a portrait I did in the Ted Nuttall workshop of my BFF's daughter. I'm pretty sure she won't be checking my FB page or my blog, I think I'm just a little blip on her radar if she see's me at all. She's going to graduate this year and this is one of the presents I'll be giving her (and mom) for her graduation! She's is one of my all time favorite young people with that sassy, wry sense of humor!
Altogether, that makes 18 portraits so far. I'll probably fudge a bit and stick some of my ATC cards here in case I don't quite make it.
My bloggie will be closing down early March if I don't figure out how to log in under my original domain user name. I've looked up everything and tried everything, but I'm in a loop and I've already spent hours trying to solve this problem. I'll keep trying though, otherwise it's time for another site.
