Final watercolor

Well, this was an interesting job to take on, a little different than I usually do. Most of all of my work is done either with oils or acrylic or digitally, and for private commissions, almost always oil or acrylic. My watercolors work is more sketchy,really washy, and usually used only in my sketch book, I consider those works to be like writings in a personal diary.

For this job, my client wanted a "washy, loose, and artsy" feel to it, sort of like my sketches . . . so that's what I did. The challenge for this job was in my photo reference. The photo that I had to draw and paint from was a black and white photo, and on top of that, half his face was in a dark (black) shadow.

I'm finishing up my Marco painting, hopefully I'll be able to post it soon, a couple other works in the mix as well, thank you for stopping by!
