Marlon Brando- or 'Jor-El' - watercolour study for larger painting.
I could have taken this further in terms of some of the values, but I felt the proportions could do with tweeking, which is impossible to do with watercolour, particularly when it gets to a certain stage. I am happy enough with it as a study, I felt I learnt a lot through just using the black watercolour, something I've done very rarely. My aim is to make a large-scale painting in colour from a black and white reference. I love using just the black watercolour to sketch with, I found it very relaxing, gradually building up the values. I'm sure I'll be doing it again soon!
