TV Head

20150503 TV Head

A head I drew whilst watching TV last night, just froze the image on the screen and sketched in pencil with watercolour over the top (raw sienna, quin burnt scarlet and ultramarine blue) then a fine tip pentel waterbrush filled with Art Spectrum acrylic ink for the black outlines. Took about 15 minutes. I’m reading Charles Reid’s book “Painting what you want to see” and I really like his style of painting…letting the colours run and merge on the page – not as easy as it looks but great fun (should really use heavy weight watercolour paper – my sketch is on cheap copy paper)
