The Art of Waiting

Sometimes, rather than pack up my sketching gear, it is easier to take my iPad when I go out. Yesterday my sister and I stopped for a pedicure here in Mazatlan and as I looked out I was glad I had something to sketch with. I liked the way these two men, who as far as I could tell did not know each other, studied the venue in front of them while they waited. They seemed to have the art of waiting down pat.

For this sketch I started by making the background layer a rich dark brown, similar to the black paper I use for gouache paintings. Then, after a quick line sketch, I built up the color, again following a process similar to the one I use with gouache.

I used the app, Procreate, for this sketch.
