Heroes and Ordinary People

By in dogs, men, watercolour, women


In the brush drawing, I’m imagining Wonder Woman’s frumpier, older cousin. I always think that these glamourous types have relatives who are less impressive, and jealous of them.

This is Cyrano de Bergerac. In one of his works, he built himself a pair of wings, and flew to the moon. Gotta love that Cyrano!

Then, just a bunch of random colour sketches of things on the street. I’m happy with these, because I kept the contrast up. Not easy!

  1. I’ve got to say that in the sketch of the silver-blue-grey car, that yellow thing you’ve been working on is working quite well. There’s a very distinct and consistent tone, a color temperature, if you will, that’s quite hard to stop looking at.

    Thanks! That’s part of the magic of watercolour painting I enjoy trying to master.
