Early picture of Whitney by john pawson

Early picture of Whitney

Painted on 14x16 watercolour paper in watercolour. This is my painting of a fantastic icon of a woman singer. may have tried but no-one has matched her individual style. And where was her true life bodyguard? when she clearly needed help and I don't just mean in the passed couple of years. A beautiful talent lost.

Her eyes look haunted and this is lovely with the shading and skin tones. A good memory. Warm regards Susie

Artist Statement
for john pawson
john pawsonI'm in my mid fifties and have always had an interest in art. I'm fascinated by all forms of art. Especially some of the old masters and English country scenes in particular. I have no formal qualifications and managed to resume my interest after we went to live in France. I would have liked to have pursued it earlier in life but my parents told me Ihad to get a proper job. I continue to study books and websites to learn new techniques.
I really like this website.
Have you taken your images and made your own cards at home? I find it a huge amount of work and wonder if it is worth it.
This will be a fabulous card. I have had some of my paintings turned into cards but confess that I take them to a local printer. I have some input as to size,... view answer
