pencil road map

I was asked in a comment recently if I do a pencil drawing first before I watercolor...this pertained to one of my figure studies...and yes I pretty much give myself a road map drawing first and then put in my washes..this goes for my other work as well. Some pencil work is done quickly and then others can take more time and be more precise...depends on my mood I guess!

such expression...lovely bloom in the background...love the colour combination here...subtle yet very expressive.

I agree with Jill's comment above. This man looks like an old seaman. I would love to hear his stories!
