Jazz group sketchbook drawing

Jazz group, Ink and watercolour drawing in A4 sketchbook, 2014
I've not been too happy with my drawings post-Cowley, though this feels better despite running out of time to finish. The last gig I went to I chose not to draw at all because of a deeply uninspiring view and stifling volume. I really like drawing this horn player but it was hard to place them on the page in a way that didn't put him in the gutter. I wasted a bit too much time puzzling over that before going for it. I quite like the spatial thing that's happening with him unpainted and breaking into the next page. A kind of jazz ghost..
