I then began to watercolor the drawing. The coloring took an under painting, a solid top coating and then final touch-ups to unify the piece. On each half of the illustration I had one person who I was avoiding. I don't know why, but I left one person on each half until the end. On the right side, it was the woman in the front row, fourth from the bottom. On the left, it was the man in the yellow and brown striped shirt and jacket.
|I enjoyed painting the patterns of the wood grain, carpet and some clothing.|

Well, I hope you enjoy this illustration and the rest of the story that is published this coming Friday at The Book of Bartholomew.
