A little Mansfield Park (in ink, watercolor)

portrait in ink & watercolor (process)

Here’s a sketch that began a few days ago as a 30 second pencil study while watching a Manfield Park (it’s been done multiple times for screen). Returned to it yesterday and it became, essentially, a study of hair. Initial pencilling and inking rendered it very Revolver in aspect, as you can see in the process scans.

Finished the pencilling by slight shading and many strands of hair

A .01mm Micron pen to solidify those strands

Beginning to lay in soft grey with watercolor; giving some depth to the hair

Several layers later of more watercolor. (Went a little mad with the red on the ear)

And, again, the final result. (I removed the gutter from the sketchbook in post, for clarity)
