Valentine

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012


I don’t really do Valentine’s Day (other than having some quite festive raspberry cheesecake today actually), but I had this little lady waiting to be scanned since last month and today seemed like the perfect day. Watercolour and gouache on A3 paper, nice and simple.

One of my favourite things to draw, look at in museums and hoard pictures of on my hard drive is a good old national costume. Obviously I have a particular affinity for the Ukrainian and Russian ones, but I’m an equal opportunity enthusiast. I particularly love the Hungarian and Serbian ones (this one is actually genuinely stylish!). These are two quick costumey paintings from my sketchbook.

Flickr is an absolute treasure trove for this kind of thing, here are just a few good ones I’ve found:
