on holiday

Spent some time at a cafe doing a little people sketching. I used a 6B pencil. Both men were relaxed and I wanted to capture the way they were draped onto their chairs... hence the title of the painting.
Then I added a bit of line work, finding the darks with a Micron Brush pen. After a while, the main fellow put on a scarf which I happily added. 
And of course, I added watercolour. The thing that attracted me to the sketch in the first place was the way the hands, shoe and legs all lined up. It was like a game of Twister! Fun to draw. : )
