This is watercolour number 4. It managed to sneak it’s way in before the other stuff I was working on after I had a chat with a friend on facebook and we decided his superhero alter-ego was Bacon-Man.
You know how these things work.
I’m planning on giving away these watercolours once I’ve done around ten, but this one is going early to the man who is Bacon-Man.
For those who are interested in the media, I drew in pencil, then lay down the watercolour wash, and then inked over the top with a Pilot V-Pen. I tried doing it the other way around – ink then paint.. it was a terrible mistake. Even after a few days the ink will still run from the water. This is a smaller piece.. A4, like the Batman one. I think if I’m going to use the vpen again (and I will) it’s better to be working at A3 instead. The lines are quite thick.
