Gloria Vanderbilt

Art Journal
The Rainbows Come and Go
Watercolor, acrylics, ink, water soluble crayons

I've been doing a lot in my sketchbook, and haven't done anything in my art journal recently.  So today was the day.  I recently saw the documentary that Gloria Vanderbilt and her son, Anderson Cooper did called "The Rainbows Come and Go".  I also read their book and those are the inspiration for my journal pages today.  I haven't quite captured Gloria....her eyes don't look like that and, while she has a big smile...this isn't quite her smile.  However, I hope that between the hairdo and the big smile....she looks a little bit like Gloria.  I had fun doing the pages nonetheless.
In progress..

I think to look more like Gloria, maybe her top teeth should be shorter, her cheeks higher, mouth wider...neck longer.  Not sure about her eyes.  Perhaps I'll try her again sometime!
