Sketching People in Watercolor

The Bridge at KVI Beach
I love doing these little water color sketches!  Sometimes they turn out well, sometimes not so well. Maybe it has something to do with familiarity with the subject.

KVI Beach is one of my favorite places to walk. I've admired this view a hundred times or more. And I've painted a good many water color paintings, some of this very scene.

Mother and Child at the Coffee Roastery
The mother and child at the Vashon Island Coffee Roastery, however, is a new topic for me. I haven't done people in watercolor except in life drawing class--where the model stays still for 20 minutes at a time! Sometimes I can get a good ink sketch that captures a moment, but to do this in water color is new for me.
