Captain Tom Moore Portrait

Hola Hello and thank you for checking out my Portrait of Captain Tom Moore who raised (as of this post) £27,641,681 for the NHS by walking 100 lengths of his back garden for his 100th birthday. This is/was (depending on when you read this) during the period of the COVID19 epidemic of 2020 and our NHS was under a lot of pressure and this inspiring gentleman helped inspire a nation to raise money to help.

As an exercise in traditional media (watercolours in this case) and as a tribute here is my portrait of the legend himself: Captain Tom Moore.

If you are interested – here as a few stages of my process of making this:

Pencil sketch

Drawing with fountain pens

Painting the figure

Painting the background

Finished. I aimed for a more abstract background to give focus to Tom.

Stay tuned for more like this as I am really enjoying my journey into Watercolours drawings. – Mikey
