People sketching and coffee-shop hopping

We spent the evening with good friends over coffee/tea at a couple of coffee shops, and I enjoyed chatting and sketching the people.

At the second coffee shop I spotted this man at the next table who was fast asleep, so he was a PERFECT subject. I worked directly with watercolor, and I am especially happy that I stopped before I overworked the thing. I really enjoyed painting this.

And just to show that not everything quite works out the way you want it to, and that it is okay to fail ... I am posting the other sketch I did that I am not happy with. Everything feels like a win if we remember that, if nothing else, it is a learning experience.
