THE SKETCHBOOKS OF WILLIAM SMITH: day 5

Today I am posting a garden of faces selected from Smith’s sketchbooks:

Even with just a quick sketch, Smith captured the personalities of the middle eastern musician (above) or the American housewife (below).

Note how Smith is never lazy. He does not draw these faces from a template that he learned in art school; he pays attention and works to understand and capture the unique qualities in each face. Otherwise, what would be the point of sketching?
