Starting to paint people

I think that retaining the character of a person or group of people is more important than trying to precisely paint them. To start and to gain confidence just draw the outlines and paint them with a transparent wash. When you have done this you should be able to see if you have kept the character or not. You may need some additional lines to help with the drawaing but rub these out with a putty rubber before painting.
