Tiny Faces

When I decided on the 9" high format for this particular series, I knew the faces would take a lot of time and careful painting. They're so small! And they can't be broadly painted, there's too much being expressed in some of them. I like the fact that one of the women below is smiling as she holds her hand out to test the rainfall, while the lady next to her is covering her mouth to sneeze or cough. It's a challenge, all right.
