COLOSSUS. 2014. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

If you haven't noticed, this blog has been seriously lacking in Colossus drawings as of late. Today's post is meant to remedy that.

COLOSSUS. 2014. Ink & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.


  1. Hey Paolo. Great work as usual. Quick question about your second drawing. Do you do watercolor first then ink or ink then watercolor? If ink first, what type of ink are you using? How long after you ink do you apply the watercolor without it bleeding?

    1. Thanks, John! I always ink first. Any waterproof ink will do, but I tend to use Holbein Special Black. I've also been using the Pentel pocket brush pen lately and that ink seems to work as well. As for time, just test it out first. You shouldn't have to wait long.
