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.
Beautiful tribute, John, very well done.

Artist Statement
for john pawson
john pawsonI'm now knocking on the door of 60 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 have Rheumatoid Arthritis and was worried that my painting would be affected but apart from some stiffness I manage.
I really like this website.
