Watercolor Portrait for Grandparents - Rough Sketch

Rough Sketch - 18x24"
This is the very rough sketch for my current commission which will be painted as a monochromatic watercolor portrait in sepia.  I actual felt my heart skip a beat (kind of sad) as I was so excited to be doing a watercolor portrait again! There are just not enough hours in the day :)

The sketch is roughly 13x19" to fit an 18x24" frame and has been transferred to pre-stretched Arches watercolor paper.  The lines are quite dark as they can be erased as the portrait progress but most will dissolve in the water. 

Ok, onto the paint, yay!

Thanks for stopping by Carol :) Me, too, I did not realize how long it has been since I got to play with watercolors!
