Faces. Portraits. People. I always struggle with them.

But I keep on trying! I had some left-over watercolour, so rather than throwing it away, I decided to use it and create this painting of an abstract man. No pencil outlines were drawn to begin with, I just sploshed the colour around and carried on until I was happy with the result. Does it really matter what an abstract painting looks like? I’m not sure, but I was happy with how this finished when I decided to stop.

Slightly unfinished, very rough, and probably out of proportion, but hey ho! It’s a watercolour abstract, from the realms of my imagination, and it passed a quick half-hour whilst I was doing it. For #WorldWatercolorMonth.


  1. The whole painting is great …. the eyes are amazing.

    When gazing at the painting, I have this over-whelming feeling of “you know who that is!” But … for the life of me, I just cannot work out who it is.
    GREAT painting though Tom.
