After painting more or less only digitally for some time, I have recently become interested in painting with real brushes and colors again. There's still a lot to learn for me, but since I haven't posted any of my own work for more than half a year, here are two presentable efforts:
preliminary sketch in blue pencil
acrylic on canvas board
The inspiration here was Joan Crawford in her Johnny Guitar (Nicholas Ray, 1954) outfit. I say inspiration because I didn't really get hold of her characteristics.
watercolor on acrylic paper
This is a test piece for a children's story I'm about to illustrate. I haven't yet decided whether I should give it a try in traditional watercolor or go for the safe digital technique.
