Eddie Izzard Inspired Watercolor Experiment

Skipping-Rope-Girls-Boxer-Kids-Jumping-Watercolor-Painting

This weekend’s watercolor experiment was inspired by the wonderful and hilarious Eddie Izzard. As part of his Glorious show he did a bit where he mentions that the only people who skip rope are little girls and huge f*&k-off boxers. If you haven’t seen his stand-up, have a look at the video below. He is one of my favorite comedians.

 

I had intended to do the background on this piece with just grey ink washes, but I decided to leave this as an experiment with a limited palette, color and value. I love the way the background girl’s clothing came out. Working with highlights and shadows in watercolor on faces is extremely challenging and will take a lot of practice. Also, I think I need better paper, but for now this is good for experimentation.
