2012 was a year for water colour paintings and also the height of my Sherlock obsession.
In February 2012 I painted this portrait of Irene Adler. She’s my favourite character in the Sherlock Holmes series, but I felt that the tv series didn’t do her justice. But she’s still an interesting character.
I like the hair, and how the blue of the background reflects in the blue of the shadowing. This makes me feel like I really need to get back to painting.
