 Watercolor sketches of people mostly from life at the Mall, Costco, and McDonalds :)

What a diverse group of people. Great sketches! Is this a new challenge you are setting for yourself, or do you always do this and this is the results over a period of time? ^_^ I'm also curious how much time you spend drawing the actual person...because in my experience you usually have 5 seconds to 5 minutes to get the essential sketch down. haha!

Sorry I didn't get back to you. The holidays were hectic.
I sketch them out in pen first. Like little thumbnails with notes on color (if needed). Then later based on those sketches I redraw them in a larger watercolor paper sketchbook. I use colerase pencils. Then I watercolor them when I have time. Little thumbs take a minute or 2, pencil sketch 10-15 mins (or more), and watercolor 15-45mins.
I really wanted to practice watercoloring more often and in smaller projects (not big fan art illustrations). I got really inspired by Clio Chiang's work.

She has a book out of people watercolor sketches that I just love! I use to draw studies of people all the time with markers and I missed it.

I know you are busy, so no worries.

Honestly the main reason I asked is because I need to start my studies up again. it just doesn't seem like there is enough time in the day, but your sketches looked like fun! ^_^

P.S. I love Clio's work too. Very inspirational. ^_^
