What happens... - Work in progress

  "What happens to the bad boys"

This is a little A3 painting I've started last week, based on some sketches I drew in my Danish classe (the last one! ;.; ).
It isn't finished yet.

It seems that the kelpie/waterhorse/bäckahäst who drowns its riders is a subject I like. This drawing is particularly close to the depiction that Theodor Kittelsen did . It wasn't my first intention but I prefer to share my profound influences (:


Let's see a work in progress. I began with strong pencil lines, what I never do. The aim here was to do not use ink for the line art.

Adding green, blue and black watercolor glazing.

Black and blue on the trees, green on the reeds. I also added "black stone" pencil, which gives a nice texture on the paper.

Each gesture is a new one with this drawing, I had never proceeded like that before.
I hope the final result will be a nice one!
