New Painting - Dusty Ray Bottoms

17/08/18

 

This week i finished my new painting 'Dusty Ray Bottoms', an original abstract portrait inspired by the performer from Season 10 of Ru Pauls drag race.

I love the creativity and versatility of such performers, and this portrait captured a moment of inspiration I felt after watching RPDR.

I wanted to create an abstract portrait, fused with my love of a textured background as shown in my other works.

I hand stretched canvas over an 80cm x 45cm frame and applied oil and acrylic paints in layers using brushes and palette knives to create this composition.

The many tones of greens with the vibrant red portrait over the top makes this an eye catching addition to a room for a pop of colour.

The painting does not resemble Dusty Ray as I have selected only a few features to paint. I have abstracted the image so much beyond recognition which I like.
