Painting Brian

Brian Throwing Rock - 2017 - 8x10
Eduardo Suré; Brian Throwing Rock, 2017; Watercolor

I painted Brian to illustrate Finding the Gray Living Jewel. I wanted to convey his pleasure about his newfound strength, but I don’t think I succeeded. His face is too serious. I don’t even remember how I messed up his right eye.

I was excited about creating this illustration. I thought I was going to enjoy drawing a muscular guy throwing a rock. I was going to make the action dramatic. Instead, I struggled through some sketches, got a little frustrated, and settled for this.

I think I was in too much of a hurry. I will try to slow down in the future. Perhaps taking a break from a project if I’m struggling will help me reset.
