The Train Clown

My brother and sister-in-law, Tony and Mary, celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary by treating their family and friends to a beautiful autumn afternoon train ride on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.  It was a lovely afternoon and one of the perks was Bob (I think that was his name) the clown, one of their friends who entertained the children on the train.  I took a photograph of "Bob" and decided it would make a nice painting.  Yesterday I drew it and today I began the painting.  It is approximately 10" x 8" and is on 140 Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper.
