I started these wizard portraits working very small (6 x 8 inch page size), but this one, which is about 9 x 11, inches just sort of happened. It seems I can’t get wizards out of my mind. Now it seems many of them might end up being very large as well. We’ll see.
This is in an Arteza watercolor book—they are not good quality, and I wouldn’t have chosen to work in that book had I known I was going to do another wizard. But I had some of these to use up and it was on the table where I had been collaging. The paper warps when wet—that makes getting a flat scan, even when weighting the book, difficult. I’m not letting that bother me (too much.)
