A Subway-Inspired Watercolor

Sketching on the subway is fun and all, but sometimes I see things I want to sketch and just can't get to my book in time, or am not in a position to sketch. Or, on occasion I see things I want to watercolor and I really can't do that on the subway. Last week I saw this guy playing the violin on the subway. I've seen him before, and he's fantastic! Usually he seems to do pretty well busking; even if he doesn't get many dollars in his violin case he gets an appreciative audience. In this car though, no one seemed to pay attention! I was the only one to clap. I took some short video to use later, and did this last week the day after I saw it. I kept the watercolor loose and quick. I call it "The Inattentive Audience"
