Poirot and Ariadne Oliver – painted sketch

The style for this little painted sketch was different from my usual; I decided to be a little crazier with the colors, brushstrokes, and the dark outline. The picture was created because someone on the Internetz happened to say that they wished there were more Mrs. Oliver pictures or some such. (I told you I create fan art on slight provocation.) The one problem is that it was done on very poor-quality watercolor paper. The paper was actually disintegrating as I used it. Ugh.

But I hope to do more pictures of Mrs. Oliver in the future. Zoë Wanamaker was splendid with David Suchet in the series, and matches very well to the book description of the character. And I know that she’s great fun to paint, because the three miniature books I painted with her picture all turned out very well. Her outfits are glorious, too.  🙂
