More sad flowers - a rose and a. . .

More sad flowers, this time a single rose.  To give it more pizzazz, I added some lines with a white gel pen.  It is still a sad rose, but now it has some pluckiness!

And this one (a anemone?) is an exercise from Jean Haines' Atmospheric Watercolors. . .sort of. . .It does not resemble her example in any way, except that it was really fun to try.

Abe Sapien portrait

Keeping with the Hellboy theme as I work through the BPRD back catalogue.  Abe Sapien, who appeared in both Hellboy movies (but does not look like he is in the reboot) is one of Big Red's best buds. Abe is a very complex character with a complicated history/origin story.  I am looking forward to catching up on it.

And once again without the background. The Kirby-esque background gives him a cool psychedelic vibe that fits the BPRD universe.
