faces in the crowds

What follows is a collection of images from my sketchbook - faces. not real people, gestures mostly. Impressions.  In watercolour, gouache, pen and sometimes a mix of all three.  Dates (especially in August, are approximate)  Interestingly, this exploration is filling my sketchbook as I go back to fill in the facing pages that normally I would leave blank.  It's rather fulfilling.  Also, this is the first time I have used gouache -- it's interesting and I like it's ability to be somewhere between watercolour and acrylic.
