Original Creation

A long way to go

Tom0779 21 Sep 2020

Something different today. It is line and wash on A5 sized watercolor paper. I wanted to paint a very fast scenery today as I don't have that much time today, and I wanted to try some small people. Thus I found this idea and I thought I can do it. But at least the small people needed a lot of time to get them look right. I am halfway happy with them, unfortunately the lot of rubbing cause I needed to erase the wrong pencil lines (I didn't have the self confidence to paint it with the fine liner directly, I think it would have been horrible), destroyed the paper at one place a bit. Next time I need to be more careful, but I think I never used the rubber that much than in this one.

I still can’t believe that this isn’t your day job. This looks like a book illustration. How long did it take you to make this?

I love mountains . The way you draw shadows is excellent .
Great job!

Thanks a lot to everyone for your feedback!
@Lilikins: No trust me, it is not my daily job, I did my first ever painting on 1st of August 2019 :) The job I do is something totally different and not related to art.But due to the current situation, I have a lot of time to follow my hobby in the evenings. And my wife and kids give me the time too. This painting was finished in around 70 minutes, but drawing the people needed somehow about 50 minutes. I mentioned it I fiddled a lot around with the pencil drawing of the people. Maybe too much but I never painted people this detailed before.
@Jin7: Thanks for your feedback, I am happy that you like it.
@Sunnylady: Thank you. Well I try to always paint new things,. I have so much things I want to paint and YouTube gives me so much instructional videos how to paint them. I hope to always come up with new things:)
@Voy Kay: Now that you say it... Yes you are right, justteh dog is missng :)
