French Faces: Jerard 3/30

"Jerard" original watercolor by Carrie Waller 5" x 7" $75
Hi Everyone,
I'm participating in Leslie Saeta's 30/30 painting challenge.  I didn't do this the first time around, so I'm attempting it this time.

I decided to paint some architectural features that I photographed years ago when we lived in Europe.  I just loved this French Architecture and the amazing amount of detail that went into the building.  As I was pondering a title it occurred to me that all of my French Faces have beards, which got me thinking about the latest bearded fascination, Duck Dynasty.  So I have my own Canarde Dynastie (Duck Dynasty in French).  Day 1 I painted William he is the Canarde Comandant.  He has to put up with the rest of these blockheads and all their shenanigans.  

Today I painted Jerard.  He is the youngest brother to William and Jacques.  He is the constant butt of all the jokes.  But don't let his sad face fool you, he is good at playing the victim.  

I painted "Jacques" also knows as Jac.  He's William's brother and will do anything to get out of work at the family Canarde call business.
