Woman in Stockholm

While having coffee and a yummy pastry at an outdoor cafe in Stockholm I saw this woman sitting at the next table. It was a beautiful day and groups of people were strolling and hanging out on this pedestrian avenue. Although she looks pensive, she was with a group of men and women talking and enjoying the day.

This drawing follows my usual pattern of getting the head proportions correct first. Details and their positions are kept fluid while figuring it all out. You can see in the video how I have to continue shifting things around until the relationships are right. Also I use the hair to hold it all together by framing the face and setting up a light and dark pattern.
