My son drifted asleep on the couch, taking a needed nap after driving down from the bay area. His sleeping face still reminds me of his baby years, and I could not resist sketching him. I guess you should be careful where you fall asleep!
A few days ago I prepared several pages of a sketchbook with a gold-tinted watercolor ground. Daylight was flooding the room from several windows and the golden pages seemed a perfect choice for this drawing. After sketching with a brown pastel pencil, I added the color with gouache, leaving much of the skin unpainted.
