The Green Man

9 comments

After posting the Carved Man the other day, and then the Little Green Man, I thought I would have a go at painting my version of the actual Green Man. More of a caricature than the actual Green Man, as things turned out, but it still passed one and a half hours nicely.

I did like the way how the eyes looked in the fading light (actually, I paint by one of those daylight bulbs, so it wasn’t fading at all), but when I see them in close-up I can see that further work is needed. Ah well. It’s a quick watercolour; a splodging of yellow here and a splattering of green there. In that case, I’m happy with the results.

You may wonder what happened to his smile. Well, plants don’t have teeth, do they? So I tried to make his mouth look solid inside.

I suppose given more time, I could finish these paintings off properly, but for now, I’m happy to leave them where I leave them.

    1. I’m not good with plants, Beverly, and just Googled ‘leaves’ and found that one, so painted it a few times. Then I thought a few berries would be a nice touch. Poison Ivy would be OK with the Green Man, I’m guessing…
