Jazz drawing, September

Drawing of jazz quartet in a4 sketchbook, ink and watercolour

This scan isn't quite straight; you are advised to hold your head at an angle. This was a jazz group led by Sam Slater on guitar, playing Django-influenced swing. Percy Pursglove on trumpet/flugelhorn, Lluis Mather saxophone/clarinet, Chris Mapp on bass.

The paper is beginning to bug me; really I should be using heavier paper designed to take water, but then the drawings would become something different. I want these to be sketches rather than laboured paintings.
