Quick Gouache Portrait on Hahnemühle NostalgieDecember 7, 2016
Above: Gouache sketch in a large A4 (8.27 x 11.69 inch) portrait orientation Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook. I started with raw sienna brush lines and just kept painting. It was way past the time to put out fresh white as I was using up paint, but it was too fun to stop and put the filbert down. (Mixing dark neutrals with complementary colors, no black paint.) Phill Jupitus is an English stand-up comedian and actor and cartoonist and podcaster I came to enjoy by watching "QI."
I stayed up too late last week and I'm still catching up.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
But I had a lot of fun and I'm not feeling guilty at all. I even love that his glasses and ears are wonky. (Apologies to Mr. Jupitus.)
