I have always watched people, their emotions, attitudes and body language.
These days I take my A5 size sketchbook with me wherever I go and try to sketch at least two people per outing. Often it is only an outline and if so I finish it at home. The first one was an outline, as I didn't want to make it obvious I was drawing her. I find it works as if I tried to sketch the full portrait I get bogged down in trying to get an likeness and often it ends up a mess. The one on the opposite page only took about 5 minutes.
The other bit of sketching I do is when watching TV. I sit on the sofa with my coloured pencils and doodle draw. This is how I get my quirky faces, as I am not looking at the drawing so am not fussed about detail.
Are you a people watcher?
