little white lies 2012


Final image for D&AD Little White Lies competition 2012 brief. I decided to paint the main character George Smiley using greyish-green watercolour because it reflects the colour palette (greens, greys, taupes and browns) and the serious nature of the film. I then drew on top of the watercolour while wet using water soluble graphite and waited until dry to draw some other finer details using a B pencil.
