This is another illustration for "Soldier of Fortune". Strangely enough, I didn't actually paint this one for the story. I had done this some months before just as a watercolor practice on a small piece of paper. I realized later that with a few minor adjustments it could fit one of the SoF scenes perfectly. I put a suit on Blair and added a watery blue background and then used it to illustrate a scene that has Blair in the rain, face upturned, looking beautiful.
