Taking my time

For the first time I am working at a full sheet of watercolor paper. 22" x 30". This is big for me as I usually cut the sheet in half or quarters. I'm also doing a complicated piece for me. Four people in it. In the past I have had trouble making multiple people looking proportionately right with each other. So I have been taking my time with this piece.

I made the initial drawing, then let it sit over night. The next day with a fresh eye I looked it over and found a bunch of mistakes. Made the changes and let it sit over night again. And so on. It is almost there. I don't like the arm on the guy on the right so I need to change it, but I think the rest is right on now.
