Traditional watercolour painting of Benedict Cumberbatch.
That's my second watercolour portrait, but in the meantime I've bought some new tools and watercolours (because I only had very, very old and cheap Pelikan watercolours from my early schooldays). I don't know how I've been able to live without Schmincke watercolours and Aquash brushes... It's just amazing and I think I fell in love... :heart: Yesterday I also bought "oxgall wetting agent". It's pretty useful (better colour gradients + no "watercolour borders", because it lessens the surface tension of water).
There's still something wrong with him (and I'm sorry for the bad photo quality) :stare: ... so it's probably time for more practice with watercolours, but at first I need to finish a few mixed media drawings...

Reference was a picture from a photoshoot (Screen Magazine 2013?).

Canson art students watercolour pad 21x29,7cm 300g/m²; Schmincke Horadam (Finest artists' water-colours), Schmincke colourless masking fluid, Pentel Arts Aquash brushes; time: ~10hours?

You are a great artist! I am trying to learn but in fact, I suspect great artists are born a great artist. Techniques and artistic rules of law may help, especially in realism but still... some are simply born with talent. You were!
