Rosemarie, Watercolor on Paper, 11" x 14"
"Genius is the ability to put into effect what is in your mind.
There's no other definition of it."
F. Scott Fitzgerald

So this is a portrait of a co-worker, Rosemarie.

It is regrettable she looks so serious in this picture, as normally she is so bubbly and full of joy. I happened to sketch this while she was reviewing some paperwork. Perhaps that was the reason for the dour look on her face.

I have been using a Goldenrod, oops it's called Spanish Orange, pencil to do the initial sketches. I really like how the yellow is leaking through in the highlights. I think it creates a neat effect.
