This is Tracy. I looked for a picture of her where she wasn't smiling as big as the ocean to paint from but there weren't that many. The one I tried was agonizingly hard and just didn't capture her spirit so I started over with this one and it practically dripped off my brush.
I read a list she wrote called "25 things about me". My favorite is #18 - "I bungee-jumped from the second highest platform in the world on Friday 13th, after milling about with black cats, spilling salt, and walking under ladders. I am more scared of missing out on life than I am of dying."
I sketched this in my Grand Portrait Handbook Journal (8" x 10.5") with pencil and watercolor.
