Mixed Media Deer



This painting started out as a traditional watercolor in mostly cool colors.  I then brought it into Photoshop and painted the warm tones over the top.

Matt Smith

Of the four Doctor Who characters I have painted, this one proved to be the most challenging.  The combination of the shirt, vest, jacket, bow tie and skin tones required great attention to detail.  All elements painted by me - no photo textures or photo bashing.




Reference photo is on the left.  I softened and blurred the background to help push the image forward.

Jenna Coleman aka Clara Oswald of Dr Who


Here's the painting with the ref photo.  I was trying to create a very good likeness, but not an exact copy of the photo.  I evened out the skin tones, softened her hair and lightened it a bit because if you have ever watched the show you would know that her hair is not really that dark.  All elements painted by me - no photo textures or photo bashing.
