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.

Artist Statement
for john pawson
john pawsonI'm now knocking on the door! I 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.
I find that at the moment I seem to be painting a lot of different subjects, anybody else have this problem ? if it is a problem !!. LOL.
John, we usually paint what appeals to us, and it doesn't hurt to paint different subjects. Now if you were going to try and get a gallery to show your work,... view answer
