Can you believe it’s been two weeks since we were last at that Comic Book Convention? They’re still turning up, those dodgy folk in their even dodgier costumes. I mean, look above. That isn’t the Penguin from the 1960’s Batman TV show. It isn’t him now, and it wouldn’t be him if I had more than the allocated hour to spend on him. In fact, that’s how I’d turn up at a Comic Book Convention if I were dressed as the Penguin. All wrong.

But never mind.

It is at it is. It’s another practice at painting a face, this time one without a mask, although there is still a monocle. Not that a clear glass disc offers much in the form of a face covering.

This is today’s watercolour for #WorldWatercolorMonth. Tomorrow I think I’ll paint some dots.

  1. I really like the baby animals. This is good but the baby is cuter.

      We’ve reached the end of that little safari… but we may go on another later in the year! 😀

    1. I cheat at painting by numbers, Jo.
      Hang on – no, it isn’t painting by numbers… it’s those magic painting books where you just add water to the image and it colours itself. I cheat at them! 😀

  3. Dots you say? Dots are good, especially when joined together 🙂

    1. I was thinking more along the lines of polka dots, Raili… although they’d be different sizes and all over the place as well! 😀
      I always go wrong with dot-to-dots.

  4. Great painting Tom. Congratulations.
    (I think you could make money on that one if you sold it!)

    1. Really?
      Thanks, Cobs, but I’m surprised. This one isn’t a favourite of mine, as you could probably tell by my write up. But thank you. It makes me feel a little better about it.
