Dusty Ray Bottoms
This original abstract portrait is inspired by the drag queen Dusty Ray Bottoms. I love the creativity and versatility of such performers, and this portrait captured a moment of inspiration I felt after watching Ru Paul’s Drag Race.
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.
