Started working on Jenny now that Chris has some color to him.  Going slowly.  I'd really like to nail this one so lots of time walking away and doing something else, then returning to look at it again and decide what's working and what to do next to fix something that isn't working. 

I got rid of Curious George on Jenny's teeshirt and am going to give her a limey-green color instead.  I really like the shades and the way they are looking so far.

These portraits are looking great!! I think you've found the 'secret' to watercolors: walking away!!
You have patience and that is always good.

Yes, I find walking away helps as well.

Thanks, Jane and Gretchen. I don't know if the walking away this time is due to patience or fear, but I'll take it because you get the same result = less rushing and overpainting :)
