I have this ongoing battle with Willem Dafoe.. This must be the best one I have done of him yet – The underlip is a little too light, though and it shines a little. And i still have no good approach for hair. But I’m moving forward!

In fairness, Willem Dafoe has a very peculiar face which means those unfamiliar proportions are probably quite a challenge.
I think that i might have been carried a bit away in exaggrating his jaw.. Or maybe my painting just looks a little more like Willem Dafoe than the reference photo. I’m not sure 😉
I’m just self learning watercolours. Very tricky media to work with. I admire your skill
Thank you very much – I’m also in the learning stages, though – but it’s addictive! Have fun with it.
The eyes are terrific.
“An ongoing battle with Willem Dafoe,” great!
Yeah, it can be hard.. I’m not sure we’ve heard the last of him just yet..!
