Serpa – 6 – (Travel Sketches Portugal 2009)

Some other people from Serpa, hanging around on cafes (You can see a firts series of Serpa people sketches here )

Serpa 32 2009 SYou can read the funny story connected to this sketch, “The tiniest Coffee in The World”,  in Cafe Crem

Serpa 33 2009 SI hadn;t really time to finish this sketch. The guy left suddenly his contemplative position, got up and went away, I guess his beer was finished. I can’t remember what all the stuff on the right side is, it looks weird to me, but it was certainly there  🙂

Serpa 34 2009 STh tiniest coffee cup in the world (from the story above) reappeared in another cofe, as you can see it. i guess Portuguese drink such kind of awful stuff…

If you wonder what the lion and the rosa elephant and the blue hippopotamus are doing there… they were little toys hanging to a baby pushchair. I have no idea though if there was a baby in the chair, I haven;t seen him all the time these people were sitting there. Sleeping probably..

    Great sketches of people – you really get a lot of their personalities (not that you or I know what their true personalities are!). But their faces tell some story.

    You’ve added a lot of wonderful complexity to the pieces with the colors you’ve chosen. Love the toy animals…

    Very nice combination of line and wash!!

    @ wrjones
    Thanks Bill! This is exactly how I work: I first draw lines, and then I wash. Painting is so simple, isn’t it?

    @ Bob
    The colours are all quite faithful to the true ones in this case. Portugal is quite colourful, this is why I enjoy it so much!

    THese sketches are some of my favorites. You make the people look so fascinating, just the right touch of line and color to give expression without overworking.
