I am currently working on a new series of paintings based on my Inkpad vector drawings. I am using a technique where I use a special transfer paper to adhere the image to a board and then I am painting over the image using acrylic paint. I am using Golden’s acrylic gold in the series to give the paintings the feeling of a Russia icon. I love the surface that I am able to achieve using the acrylic on the board.
This is a portrait of Elizabeth for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. I decided to keep it simple and just use Inkpad on the iPad. I have been looking at some of Alex Katz‘ portraits recently and was influenced by his very graphic style.
