25 Superhero Watercolor Paintings That Will Blow You Away

I’m always amazed by how much a talented artist can convey with fewer strokes than I’d take to create a horrible looking stick figure.

We here at EliteReaders love showcasing the works of fantastic artists – regardless of their chosen medium.

If you’ve been here before, you’ve probably seen that story about awesome street artists who were asked to create any artwork on a museum’s walls. Recently, we’ve also featured James Doran-Webb’s unique driftwood animal sculptures, Stefan Kuhnigk’s monstrous creations using random coffee stain, and Laura Jenkinson’s quirky cartoon-inspired makeup art.

For this blog entry, allow us to introduce you to the wonderful watercolor works of Clementine Campardou.

Clementine is actually a French artist and designer who currently resides at Sydney, Australia.

A couple of years ago, she motivated herself to paint at least one artwork each day and share it online. She took the challenge seriously and so far, she has produced over 500 pieces by using her trusty watercolor.

Why watercolor? Well, according to her:

“I work mostly with watercolor, I need it to be fast and I like the spontaneity of it.”

As you will see below, the artist has a huge love for superheroes. She has taken inspiration from most of these heroic characters since she was young. Her watercolor arts simply look stunning and classy. It’s amazing how she uses minimal splashy strokes and still distinctly capture the essence of the characters.

So without further ado, let’s take a look at some of her illustrations:

Brilliant Artist Uses Driftwood for His Stunning Sculptures!

James Doran-Webb transforms driftwood into something magical.

Sculpting requires more than just artistry; it requires a lot of patience. Regardless of the medium that the artist wants to use and the size of the project, an artwork may take hours, days or weeks to finish. I think it’s difficult to create a beautiful and realistic sculpture, especially if you’re using wood or any hard material.

That is why I was amazed when I saw James Doran-Webb’s artwork. This British artist has always loved working with wood until he began experimenting with driftwood in early 2000. He now resides and works in Cebu, Philippines, and continues to assemble the most intricate and amazingly beautiful pieces using the driftwood he collects from the island's beautiful beaches.

The animal sculptures he created was so fascinating.

As a new parent, I cracked up when I stumbled upon a funny Ed Asner quote one day. He said “Raising kids is part joy and part guerilla warfare.”

I instantly connected with that. You see I have a very active toddler who can only be described as a “little twister.” Everything in the house is a mess. It’s a normal day for us when we see clays on the floor, toy trucks on the shoe rack, jigsaw puzzles on the book shelf, etc. It can be a bit annoying to put these toys away all the time and yet they always find their way back to these improper places.

Still, I know this is all just the beginning. Our boy is only 3 years old and I’m sure of one thing - the worse is yet to come. We really should expect the unexpected, meaning more chaos, as he grows older.
