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!

Dear Moyse,
Absolutely beautiful and awesome!!
Cheers, Sadami
Love this in black and white.
Lovely stuff Paul, I love using watercolours myself. An artist friend gave me the tip of adding Gouache for certain colours to add vibrancy, works a treat!

I was never sure whether Brando's squinty look was more contemplative or constipated - but whatever it was you've nailed it!
