Today’s Art (26th February 2014)

Well, I kind of had artist’s block a while before I produced today’s watercolour pencil paintings. So, eventually, I decided to make two pictures based on the two most common themes in every story and work of art throughout history.

As usual, these two paintings are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.

"Thanatos" By C. A. Brown

Thanatos” is probably one of the most melodramatic paintings that I’ve made and, surprisingly, it just kind of evolved randomly as soon as I started sketching. I’m really proud of this picture, although the pose in it is probably somewhat cliched though.

"Eros" By C. A. Brown

Eros” was originally going to be a painting of a single nude character but, a while after I started sketching it, I suddenly thought that it would be a lot better to paint an amorous couple in a hotel room somewhere.

I’m quite proud of this picture, although it required a hell of a lot of digital editing after I scanned it in order to make it look even vaguely good.
