A couple weeks ago I painted this poster for the Roundabout Theatre Company! As usual it was a very quick turn around, especially since they wanted something "Rembrandt-like", and lets face it, I'm no Rembrandt. :)
My original art . . .
The reference of the model or actor that I had to paint was limited and not very large so that added a bit to the challenge. I wanted to make sure that I had some good reference to help this piece a long so I went to a local costume shop here in Chicago and created my own reference and lighting . . . it was a lot of fun!
