Day 1: 29 Faces in September

Here's #1:  Done in Gouache in my sketchbook, so the water made the page buckle a bit since it is not intended for really wet applications.  I find that if I paint on a piece of paper, it gets lost or put away someplace.  If I do it in my sketchbook, it is there, permanently, unless I tear it out, since it is a bound book.  I started out with watercolor pencil, but lost the whites, so went to gouache.  This is one of my students.  I take pictures of them every week in class, so I have lots of reference photos to use.
