WDE September 29th: Very Mixed Media Boatman

This started out as a simple biro sketch. It didn't quite work so I added some watercolour. It still didn't work so I added some acrylic plus watercolour.
It is still not there but it will get posted anyway in the well known spirit of the WDE.
It has had a hard life rather like, I suspect, it's subject.

Re: WDE September 29th: Very Mixed Media Boatman

Oh Harry this is so beautiful, with strong expressions.
First when I read your comment, I started to laugh but at the end you made me some kind of sad especially looking at his face, yes he must had a hard work indeed.
Thank you.

I'm sorry to hear that it was a struggle but it's interesting to learn that you started with one medium, then added another to try to save it, and then added another, and another

Fantastic! Harry, I love the mix of textures and the light that radiates from his face. His expression definitely shows a hard life. You really did a great job on this.

Re: WDE September 29th: Very Mixed Media Boatman

I don't know what you were trying for but it definitely works for me. The sensitive beautiful face tells a story of a hard life and those eyes just melt my heart. This is a keeper Harry

This is such an expressive piece Harry ... worth all the effort and hugely successful.
