I ended up taking this Joe Strummer sketch to a painting with Paynes Grey Watercolour and white Gouache. Unfortunately the paper got all chewy, which is unusual because this was on some very decent Hahnemuhle stuff. You may not be able to tell from the scan. There’s some parts I’d like to fix but I got to a point where it feels like I overcooked it, loaded it with too much water and indecision at some point.
Doing little studies like this can really take the pressure off from the bigger or more important pieces. These are about 5 inch tall and I try..‘try’ to not spend too long on each. I’d recommend working small and moving on quickly if you’re trying to build a daily habit.
