This is a miniature John Lennon painting which other than it’s size, is created in exactly the same way as larger scale Joe Hendry Original paintings. Quality acrylic paint on deep edged cotton canvas.
Madonna Ciconne painting created over several months in oil on board. this framed Madonna painting is quite an emotive and high impact artwork. I wanted it to have a slight “deco” or twenties feel to it. I endeavour to improve any celebrity paintings which I have created over the years and I find myself quite satisfied with te completed artwork.
Madonna in a big Pop Art graphic style. I designed this artwork in 2004 and brought it to canvas shortly after. There is something very reflective of my Interior Design work in this canvas, and still today, I am proud of this, clean, sharp, often copied art.
Marilyn In Art, the book by Roger G. Taylor which appeared in 2006 was the first book my artwork appeared in. The book featured “To Kiss Marilyn”, my first ever Marilyn Monroe paintings.
The top painting is a homage to Gary Numan around 1979 and the second Numan painting is of the man in more recent years although it was painted five years before the top painting.
Although my painting style has developed so much since I painted this large scale canvas, it makes me smile. As I have said elsewhere on this website, there were many artists producing this kind of work in the early to mid noughties.
Like many of my early oil paintings, this was quite a simple painting in that once i had the likeness established, there was not the same layering of paint in the manner that I work today. Still, I think this is an honest example of where my painting was at the time.
This was a commissioned painting of Daniel Dumile, aka MF (Metal Face or Metal Fingers, no one seems to know) Doom, musician and enigma.
I clearly recall painting this marilyn Monroe “pop art” canvas at the end of 2006 and being absolutely terified as it took some confident initial strokes on the canvas.
I decided during my Klimt phase to paint this artwork for a very special lady who is aMarilyn Monroe fan.
Creating a painting of Boy George was great fun and this was added to even more as I wanted to include it in a series of original paintings with a Gustav Klimt influence. I had also been stying tarot cartd art at tthe time and this also influenced botht hte painting content and the title, “Queen Of Swords: King Of Clubs”.
At over three feet square, this painting of John Lennon was really quite exciting to work on. The bacground was painted first and the painting was then layered without trying to lose the likeness. Although the Beatles were sligtly before my time, I have a huge respect for what they achieve and the tragedy of John Lennon makes him all the more fascinating.
Debbie Harry and Blondie have long been something of an obsession of mine and I like to experiment with different ways to paint Deborah Harry. This was my first, very graphic and stylised Blondie artwork and the painting created a little bit of a stir at the time, appearing in the Scottish press and in the 5th Anniversary Blondie Review.
Blondie and Debbie Harry paintings were canvases I cut my teeth on just before I began to paint full time. Initially, I concentrated on celebrities whom I was definitely a fan of rather than just what seemed to be in demand at the time.
Painting Elvis Presley, like painting Marilyn Monroe is frought with dangers. The fear for this artist, is producing an artwork which may be cliched. I approached this canvas in a bold manner with large brushes and much watered down paint. I may visit painting Elvis Presley again at some point but for now this remains one of only two Elvis Presley paintings which I have ever produced.
Looking back, I am struck by the many times that I painted Marilyn Monroe. I definitely have a fascination for the lady and tried to paint her in different ways in order to investigate her features more.
Bombsheel, was a title I had wanted to use for some time in the creation of an original Marilyn artwork. this formed part of a series of paintings which happened over the space of a year or so and looking back, I can see the similarity in the approach to the canvas.
Although painted in acrylic, this Marilyn Monroe painting could just have easily been created in watercolour had it not been for the fact that the canvas was three feet high,
marilyn Monroe painting in a freestyle almost watercolour approach to the canvas. As I have said elsewhere, I try to bring something different to each painting of Marilyn and there always seems to be something different to capture about this celebrity icon.
Marilyn Monroe can be a real danger to paint as she has been painted so many times. It can be daunting for an artist trying not to paint a cliched artwork. This Marilyn canvas was approaced in a loose style with deep colours and large brush strokes.
