Figure Drawing and Tinting during Quarantine

I am happy to have been able to combine my ink sketching with my watercolor painting. I am working with a 12×9″ block of watercolor paper, so it is easy to prepare ink drawings at home during quarantine. This was difficult during the days of working.

Two Sketched Figures and Two Sketchy Figures

I carefully outlined the two left-most figures and added some internal features. I drew the mustache on the next figure very quickly, along with the rest of the face. As for the fourth person, I drew him with tentative strokes, a totally different technique than I used for the first two portraits.
