Well, once again, one of today’s watercolour pencil drawings [ “Message (III)” ] is a re-drawing of one of my older drawings.
Even though I’m going against my own advice on this subject, all of these re-drawings are due to a combination of needing to give my imagination a break for a while and the fact that I also want to see what my “greatest hits” look like as high-quality watercolours.
Naturally, I’ll also include the previous version of this drawing for comparison too.

“Galaxies” was mainly drawn/painted in order to practice drawing people in profile and I’m quite proud of how it turned out, although the background ended up looking less interesting and dramatic than I expected it to.
“Message (III)” is my second re-drawing of a drawing I originally made in July 2012 and I’m quite proud of how this version of “Message” turned out.
Since, although it doesn’t quite capture the gloom and greyness of the original, the lighting and perspective are a lot better than they were in either of the older versions of this picture.
Speaking of which….
I drew “Message (II)” about a year ago and, even at the time, I didn’t really think that it was a particularly good re-drawing. So, it’s great to finally create a proper version of this drawing 🙂
