From Me to You

Whoops, haven't updated in quite a while. I haven't really been as busy art-wise lately; I need to remedy that. Here is a gouache painting of the Beatles copied from some of their Hard Day's Night photos. This was a bit of an experiment in minimal detail. I did rough size sketches of them, and then just went at it with black gouache for the facial features on a blue-gray mat board. Scary doing that, but I didn't make any major mistakes. Except I hate drawing with a ruler so you get wobbly boxes around them.
