One more portrait

Here is my watercolor portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes.


Right color choices make things a lot easier and textures add some depth.

The reference image was unusually cut like this, but I believe, that this approach adds some interest to the portrait.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. You have definitely captured his mouth, and I really like the overall look of the painting.
