I'm working on this painting (of Elizabeth Taylor) for fun. I plan to finish this piece with watercolors and india ink. I found a really nice photo of her from the mid 1950s that I'm using for reference.

Indiana Jones

Watercolor and India Ink

This is an illustration I did just for fun. I used watercolor and India ink on Crescent cold-pressed illustration board.

Indiana Jones is one of my favorite movie characters. In my opinion, Raiders of the Lost Ark is the best of the "Indy" movies. One of my favorite scenes is when Indy and Marion reunite in Marion's bar, in Nepal, having not seen each other for 10 years. The ensuing argument between them is one of the reasons I think the sceenplay written by Lawrence Kasdan is so excellent.
