Sketching from life

Hello folks,
This one took me about 15 minutes. It was done with graphite pencil and white prismacolor pencil on toned sketchbook paper.
It's ok, there's some areas I could've worked more but it's still worth posting (I guess).
Thanks for stopping by.

A trip to the Museum

Hello folks!
Yesterday I took my son to the Museum, it was the first time he was surrounded by art.
While my in-laws, my wife and my son were appreciating the works of art I was sketching.
Museums are a great place to sit back, chill out and sketch.
We went to a great museum here in Sao Paulo, called 'Pinacoteca do Estado'. It was built in the turn of the 19th to the 20th Century and it officially opened its doors to public in 1911. If you guys have the chance to go, don't miss it. It's worth the visit.
This sketch was done in graphite pencil.
Thanks for stopping by.

Here are some drawings from life I did this past Saturday. I decided to do some sketches while the students were busy drawing from the model.
Thanks for stopping by.
