Divine!

I've been working on more watercolours this week. I actuality started this drawing way back some time last year. I had drawn out the grid sketch all ready for starting the final piece but just couldn't get the markers to work right for it. Suddenly remembered it this week and thought maybe watercolours would work?

In case you don't know Divine was a famous drag actor in John Waters films. sadly since passed away.

I'm not at all happy with this painting, the hair drove me mad but I posting to keep a record of my progress. Hopefully I will get better in time! I think I need to follow the rule "less in more" with watercolours, so very different to working with markers.

I also draw a silly cartoon version of him from the Pink flamingos film. I really should invest in a watercolour sketchbook as my moleskine paper doesn't really like it.

Working in watercolour makes a nice change but makes me realise how much I like the control of maker pens.
