No Better Things to do?

By in horses, men, sketches, watercolour


I’m actually putting off some important work, but thought I’d screw around with watercolour, because it’s important to keep one’s hand in. These guys are from some things I watch a lot, which are the “making of” documentaries from the Extended set Lord of the Rings DVDs.

I think I like those more than the real films. They remind me of stuff I’ve done, both in front of and behind cameras. Painting sets, etc, running around in armour, yelling. Even writing and working with few of the people from this very project.

Below, your standard horsie. I did some yellow underpainting to get the effect of “light,” which didn’t really come off. Still, I like these, because they’re free and unlaboured.
