Color study of Mr. Stevens.
Online I found this photograph of singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens. I always liked the picture because it has fantastic colors in it. (I'm seeing him in Portland ME soon!)
I thought it might be fun to do a quick study of it. There are so many fun parts in this photograph, I knew I would have fun. (Plus I admit I think he is oh so handsome, so I have no problem studying this photo intently whilst painting it...haha)
In the photo there is a little glint of blue light hitting his teeth. Ha! that was my favorite thing to paint.
This is what I was working on when I got distracted with Sufjan:
I lost some art for the book when my hard drive got ...um erased. So today I worked on making another treatment for the title page. It's slicker looking I think, but It wasn't fun having to go back and redo when I need to go forward!
