Pen and ink Portrait of John Lennon. This was a challenge to me because the photograph in the CD doesn't look like a stereo typical snap-shot. It is just a good moody photo of him. You can see the real sorrow and annoyance in his forced grin.
I know the changes seem subtle because it is so far into the piece. Don't be bored look at the progress from stage 15 to 30, then 30 to 45. The stages will continue until the painting is perfect. This will be my first perfect piece. The Essence is the closest to my goals(see sold items)it took me three months to make it. With The Madonna, if it takes a year of stages so be it.
