Throwback Thursday: Sherlock

I started a new job this Tuesday so I’m really tired right now and almost forgot about TBT. But we’ll continue with a watercolour painting.

My Sherlock obsession started in 2011, when I painted this picture. It’s not my best work, but I like the shadowing in the face. I could have worked more on the clothes and the hair than I did, but I still feel it turned out rather well.

Throwback Thursday: The Woman

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.
