I can’t quite get the colour reproduction right on the photo of this work, for which my apologies. I take pictures for my Blog on my IPad and the colours don’t seem to have the definition of my IPhone. I have an Instagram account for which I use my IPhone, so please go there later today for a better resolution.
Enough of the technicalities. This painting is a homage to Amy Winehouse and I am grateful to @Pegasusart for permission to use the wonderfully inspirational street art image of Amy. I had the idea of reversing my woman to mirror Amy’s pose, as I felt this made the composition ‘sing’. I also specifically went for a blonde to compliment Amy’s dark tresses. I think it works. Please see previous week’s blog for more details about this piece.
I am exhibiting at Roy’s People Art Fair (@royspeopleartfair on Instagram) at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower, London 1-4 November and am excited about meeting the other artists and talking to visitors to the Fair about my work. My theme will be Amy Winehouse based and I have her mother’s permission to use titles of Amy’s music as titles for this series of my paintings. I call this work ‘Back to Black’ as I felt it suited the back of the blonde looking at the black haired Amy. I would imagine viewers will have their own interpretation. Please come along to the Art Fair and introduce yourself to me as I would love to meet you.
