From a photo taken at River Downs racetrack on Jerry's birthday, I singled out Jenny and Chris for this one. I did the light sketch on tracing paper and then went over the tracing outlines with black marker so it would easy to trace onto the watercolor paper.
Traced it, trying to fix Chris' mouth that got too wonky in the first sketch, and make any minor adjustments while looking at the photo again.
I'm calling it Lucky Numbers (you can see all the numbers of the seats behind the two of them in a field of black - which should work well in the painting). I like Jenny's cool shades, too. Chris had on a black and grey shirt and Jenny had a tee-shirt on with Curious George on it. Think I'll change that and give her a color that pops a bit more...we'll see.
Again, the test is to keep it light - don't lose all the lights - let the brush dance over the features, not smoosh them into oblivion. If it works, this will be Portrait 5? (This is on 1/2 sheet Arches 140# cold press watercolor paper.)
