This work has been inspired by the recent television programme, “The Big Painting Challenge” (on BBC One TV in the UK) in which amateur Artist would make Art with the aid of trained professionals.
One of the techniques demonstrated was to use a transparency box lid, and draw a line with a pen on it of the perspective view (see links below). I have further developed this technique to use white semi-transparent paper, as the box lid (50g Paper Thinness Paper possible) and overlaid this onto an Iconic Image of Retro Celebrities on Screen, represents perspective image. I have used a Pen to create an Outline Drawing with one continuous line, without taking the Pen off the Paper (Technique learnt the Art School). In the work, I am looking to make “Crude” and/or “Naïve” as possible and Not looking for a representational Realistic Image.
This is a Retro Image of “Adele” with other Retro Celebrities Stars to follow, in various pen & inks, charcoal, acrylic pens, pastels etc.
