It was a group of people studying for what seemed like an economics exam. I thought this would be a challenge. Rendering multiple people in a group is often challenging because of their little movements and relational perspective. Its really easy to end up with a group of well rendered people of noticeably different sizes.
I think this watercolor was rather successful in these regards. The figures are correctly propotioned to one another. I also like how I rendered the chairs in this.
I started the sketch in yellow watercolor pencil and then added the color. It is kinda neat how cool and blue dominate I was able to keep the painting despite the yellow pencil base. My heavy often leads to pictures that are dominated by the base drawing.
