This is mixed media. Acrylic washes used as watercolor...Tombow and Pitt Pens...graphite and colored pencil.. On watercolor paper.
I did this a few days ago for Liz Holm's collection. It was a joy to see her artwork on the decorated box containing the watercolor sheets. It was also a treat to see Adebanji's superb drawing! Liz's theme is portraits of any kind.
I decided to attempt an illustration of the Beatles..the Fab Four. I like doing star portraits because they are so recognizable. I enjoyed drawing stars from the movie mags as a youngster.
I tried to take the attitude of an illustrator for this one because I am fascinated by their work. I wanted to keep the colors more inventive as opposed to realism.
Get ready for it, Vern. It started on it's way to you on Thursday. Canada, here it comes!
