Metroheads - The guy with the two glasses and the one with soft hair
The guy with the two glasses, one on his head and one on his nose - A Latin American gentlement (I hear him speak Spanish on the cellphone) reading his newspaper. He sits directly in front of me, it is very rare that I sketch people from such a close range, and I think I make it depend on the kind of AURA which is around people. Here I feel such a calm being, poised and concentrated, I guess he knows what I am doing but he tolerates it in a happy way. I love his attitude. I can study him without being a voyeur. I observe and he lets himself be observed. He is giving me something precious here.
The man with the oh so soft looking hair - I experimented some other technique, I added the hair in photoshop, after heaving watercoloured the person. I'm not so fond of it, it is not a technique I'll use, I prefer sticking to my watercolours. Interesting, though. The man's shirt originally was black and silvergrey but I saw it lemongreen:)
Have a wonderful day!
