I have not posted in a long time, but wanted to share one of my recent finished projects. I am really sorry if it should not be in this forum, but I considered it more of an image reproduction than an actual painting b/c of the process used to create it. Please let me know if you feel it should be posted elsewhere.
I really needed/wanted a big piece of pop art to put over my couch - so I figured I would go ahead and paint one! My husband and I LOVE the Rat Pack and I really wanted something candid and fun. Anyway, I was really excited about the way it turned out and it fits into the style of the rest of the room really nice as well. I am hoping to redo it soon and fix Dean's face a little. I do not like the way the colors look on him as much as on Frank and Sammy.
Enjoy!! Thanks for looking.
Here is the process:
I found a picture that I liked and played around with it in Photoshop until I got down to manageable "pop art" shapes.
After working in Photoshop
After enlarging it and transferring it to the canvas via transfer paper. I started painting - basically like "Paint by numbers" at that point.
Work in Progress
Thanks again for looking!! Have a nice day!
