Here are some added steps to the completion of the Long John Silver watercolor recently posted. No, I did not lob off my leg to get the pose right. Photoshop did it…
The pencil drawing and the result with watercolor added. Robert Louis Stephenson’s Long John Silver character from “Treasure Island”. An imagined scene of Long John visiting Flint’s treasure before it was moved to the Hispaniola. He is hefting a bag of gold and secreting doubloons in his pocket. The painting is 14″ x 10″ on cold press 300 lb Aches paper.
An 10″ x 8″ watercolor produced for the fun of it. Many of the watercolors appearing in this blog – ( those not painted directly onto books as remarques) are available for purchase. They are not framed, but and arrive shrink wrapped upon a piece of foamboard. Contact me by email for details: email@example.com
