‘Marley’

Bob Marley, King of Hearts

A4 mixed media original painting on paper, in black A3 float frame 

Previously exhibited by The Art Centre of Sydney, Darlinghurst

Inspiration

This human ray of sunshine has created some of the most uplifting music there ever was, I don't think his songs will ever get old! I remember going to a Wailers concert as a kid and being devastated that he wasn’t going to be performing (he’d passed away 10 years before I was born, I wasn’t the most switched on child) so when I got the request from a subscriber to paint him I use couldn’t refuse! In my eyes, he is the king of reggae and I know his smile is going to light up whichever room he lives in ❤️

Process

To create these original paintings, I first prep the paper with a collage of various vintage papers such as musical scores, comic books, dictionaries, encyclopaedias and biographies. The second layer is a clear gesso base to draw on top of then a charcoal sketch mapping out the lights and darks of the portrait, first with vine charcoal and secondly with compressed charcoal and charcoal pencils. This is then sealed with spray fixative, and time for the final details using Winsor & Newton oil paints to make the portrait pop and add contrast between the person and the background. Once I’m fully happy with the portrait I then fill the remaining area with either black or white acrylic paint and spray paint on the playing card details! I’m so happy with how they look I hope you love them as much as I do xx

The Series

The ‘Royal Flush’ series is an offspring of my favourite paintings from the ‘Get Messy Challenge’, and the series is only just beginning! I have so many ideas of how to expand on this collection that I can’t wait to share with you.
