Watercolours to go

I have for the last six month been heavy in to teaching myself watercolour techniques to an extend where I can ad colour to my illustrations/comic pages.

This is a view from the garden of the house I am residing in at the time in El Paso.
In the back one can see Los Llanos..
This is a motive I’ve already painted, drawn and photographed various times over and over.
Here’s another variation on the motive.

The first one is done on Bristol board, the second on on regular cheap watercolour paper.
They’re both done with a combination of watercolours and ink & brush/markers/ink pens.

The next one is a fantasy scribble I did on cheap sketch paper.
Just called it the Hag….:)
Apart from the paper, it’s done the same way as the two others.

The reason I mix the two techniques (ink & watercolours), is of course to use it for my graphic novels.
I was always inspired by people like Giraud, Hermann Huppen and similar stuff.
Lt. Blueberry was one of my biggest heroes back in the 70’s.
I grew up on the Norwegian west coast during the 60’s and 70’s, with no access to any cultural outputs. My mom saved my sanity by getting me weekly quality comics. Thanks mom…. :)
