No room for artistic freedom here! Exact and accurate, end of discussion.
U2 released a single in Europe (while I was still living in Germany) and this was the cover. I still lean toward black and grey for portraits because they look more like photos than paintings...
This is an old, old photo... my first attempt at doing a portrait... I had just learned how to make magnums, I still know how to make my own needles!!!
Betty Blue... 37 degrees is body temperature and 2 is a couple... from the cover of a love story.
Che Guevara has always been a popular design, but you don't see many actual portraits of him. Too bad this man had immunization scares that I had to 'work with'...
This was a challenge and made the man wearing it very happy. And, for all you wise ones... Bill had a wondering eye so don't get critical of my work!!!!!!!!!
aka David Lee Roth... wanna play 'Stare Down'???
Bob Marley and the Zion Lion, a mane of dreadlocks!
