As usual, so much drama expressed. Like the colors.
I love how you combine strong lines and the subtle flow of watercolor - such a pleasing contrast. Your firm grasp on the body's proportions amaze me - you make it look so easy! But if it was easy, there would be more art like yours around, but I find yours to be quite unique:-)
Thanks, Anthony and minn.The black ink sketch that this is based on was drawn over two sheets of moleskine sketchbook. If I can figure out a way to photograph it, I will post it, as well.
i always like it when the watercolor puddles and the pigment settles on the edge. see a bit of that here
Me, too. It is one of the best properties of watercolor.
Such well described form and volume - and he has spark,
Thanks, Katherine. I was so excited to try out some new watercolor markers.
This guy looks so familiar to me. From the neck up.
Then you probably don't know him from the beach.I actually have some problem with recognizing faces, a less than average ability.
So do I. And it can be quite embarrassing when someone comes up to you in a public place and they know you but you don't know them from Adam. So I have a few stock phrases I'll throw out as I troll for hints as to identity. I have a really funny story, but it's too risque so I'll probably never tell it.
I was going to say something about Chuck Close, who has an extreme form of the condition, but you have completely distracted me. I really really want to hear the story.
I was immediately struck by his face, he looks like a British actor whose name I can't remember. This is all in keeping with the facts that I'm well above average on face recognition but recalling someone's name is quite a struggle for me.
I'm bad with names too, though I believe in using crutches, like my scribbled notes and iPhone, to help me seem like I am better than I am.
