After my successful painting of Cookie and Candy, I felt newly inspired to do more painting, more frequently.
I decided to carry on my theme of reproducing pictures of my favourite poeple, and while a project to create a portrait of James Ellroy stalled temporarily, I decided to paint a picture of one of my all-time favourites – Tintin.
I decided on Tintin because it allowed me to tick several boxes at once. The colours would remain flat blocks on the whole, but it would also provide a new challenge in that I would be working in colour rather than monochrome, and I would have to reproduce the colours of the original image as closely as possible. I will freely admit that I am not very good at colour mixing.
I did a lot of looking for the right image to copy. After a while, I settled on the one below.
Rather than go into massive detail, I’ll simply post photos of the progress with a caption.
