Man with Hands on Head

Man with Hands on Head

I drew and painted most of this one a while back… and just finished it off this week. It’s watercolor on India Ink (on paper.) Early on I did a lot of the watercolor in rather wet wash – so many of the colors more-or-less blended – which is difficult to control – but sometimes turns out nicely. I liked it on this one, but it was a little light, so I’ve added more darks… It’s a bit tough to make later layers blend in with earlier wet washes… so I didn’t go back into this for a while.

I mentioned some portrait-with-hands inspiration on an earlier blog entry.

  1. I stared at this forever. Love the distortion on these people. I commented on Man 28, also. I so rarely find this that I have to comment when I see it. The eye, the nose, the twist. Is he twisted or is something in his life causing him to feel twisted. Thanks for sharing.
