Here's another one for the exhibition. I've included some early progression shots, I take photos at various stages anyway, so I can see how things look through the viewfinder. It helps give distance from the piece and therefore makes it easier to see the corrections needed. The progress shots are from my phone, hence the incorrect colours. My palette for this was Vermillion, Ultramarine, Yellow Ochre, and Titanium white. No black!
Jeff Buckley, for those who haven't heard of him, had success with just the one album 'Grace', and then drowned whilst swimming in the Mississippi River before he could finish the second. His rendition of the Leonard Cohen song 'Hallelujah', has recently been re-released and reached number two in the UK.
(UPDATE: If you would like an invite to the opening night of my exhibition (7pm, Feb 2nd), please email me as soon as possible.)
