Title: Jimi Hendrix
Size: 5” x 8” inches
Medium: Acrylic and colored pencil on illustration board
Year: 2009
Private Collection (Sold)

I absolutely love the way this came out. Not an easy piece to do, the lighting was complicated to say the least and getting the smoke to look like ... well, smoke took a bit of doing. In the end I think it was worth all the trouble. A piece like this one can test your limits but it also helps you grow and learn as an artist.

I think this has turned out brilliantly. I know what you mean about the smoke, difficult to do especially with acrylics but you have done a great job.
