I had been carrying around a Moleskine Sketchbook for getting some sketching in. I had been using a Fabriano notebook but found the paper to be too thin. What I liked about the Moleskine is that the paper is thick and holds a light wash of watercolor well.
Here’s one of my favorite pages of sketches…parents and coaches watching soccer and my mother. With people I worked with quick gestural lines to capture the expression of the spectators. Most of them “posed” for about a minute or two. The sitting spectators posed longer. And, of course, my mother posed longer.
