Five Minute Portraits

In an effort to step up my ability to quickly capture portraits when I'm out sketching on location, I'm doing five minute portraits in ink from photo references in the evenings. That way, there's no correcting and no turning back! This 11x17", two-page spread is 40 minutes of sketching time, using Private Reserve Chocolat mixed with a bit of Private Reserve Velvet Black in a Platinum Preppy fountain pen, and a waterbrush for the washes.
