The Black Keys

Here is another painting for Rankin's Hunger Magazine.
It's an illustration of The Black Keys

Painted on Rives bfk paper
done with: Watercolor
Prismacolor Pencil
Water-Soluble Oil Pastels

There was some digital color correction done to set the mood (mostly the gray background) And to clean up those white shapes.

Original photograph for reference provided by Rankin. creator/owner of Hunger Magazine

SIDE NOTE: Just started an Instagram. Look for @erikjonesart
