David Bowie , acrylic portrait

David Bowie by Fiona

Fiona  painted this fine acrylic portrait of David Bowie last week  . It began with a photo reference,  then a grid to transfer drawing onto a 10″ x 10″ canvas. Built up in layers and fine tuned, until running out of corrections.

I post it to show a nice bit of work by my talented students (they make my job so easy!) and also to celebrate the Man’s nominations in this years Q awards and the Mercury Prize for The Next Day!
