Metamorphica (part 2 of 3)

After warming up in my sketchbook, I decided to try my hand at painting on ATC's (Artist trading cards) that measured 2"x3". Each card was taped down, creating a nice quarter inch border all around. I worried about the cards curling, so light watercolor washes were appropriate. I have to say that I'm really surprised neither of these cards curled when completed!Three to five models were shown at a time, giving a great mixture of quick gesture poses and one long pose. I had to decided quickly...which one to draw?
