This was a watercolor study I did a few months ago. At the time I was looking at the works of J.C. Leyendecker and Robert McGinnis, and I think the influence shows in this watercolor sketch. I just love everything about the original Tom Hardy photo. His dapper attire, the lighting, his expression, and of course the dashing Tom Hardy himself. I could have gone a lot darker to add more contrast, but I was kind of enjoying the simplicity of the value range.
Thanks for visiting!
