The figures I paint include friends and family while they are sitting still- often reading or writing. Instead of asking them to pose for me, I prefer to paint them as they as they choose to sit.  I also paint people I don't know when I'm working on site and someone comes by to do something (like weeding in a garden, eating at a cafe, or just walking along the street).  In these instances I have to paint them quickly as I never know when they'll leave. While I infrequently paint with other artists, when this does occur I like to include them in my paintings too.
