Observe 3 People

Next time you are in a lunch or coffee break, take your sketchbook and pencil with you.

Then: Choose 3 people that you want to observe and draw.
Really focus on their body language. How do they move? What emotions can you read in their expressions and movements?

Choose either the UVO or Gray method and transfer your observations into your drawings of these 3 people.
