This is a painting of Jimi Hendrix at the Woodstock festival in 1969.
It was an exercise to try out a certain technique. I printed a picture and painted directly onto it. It’s all done in the same colour, it’s just mixed with either white or black, to make it look brighter or darker. The initial colour was a slightly purple-red. The hair, on the other hand, is done in another style, I don’t like it that much. It seems not to fit into the picture, as the rest of the head is done in a high contrast scaling technique. It simply lacks some depth.
Materials used: Acrylic colours (blue, red, yellow, white and black), 2cm Painting brush.
