The Great Alvaro

The Great Alvaro

 

Painting of Alvaro based on a show he had in Helotes, TX opening for Girl In A Coma. He is the singer for the esteemed band called Piñata Protest. The lighting of this image was perfect for painting. The main spot light illuminates his face and provides a cool contrasting tone to offset the warm back lighting. This painting was a lot of fun to paint, and I learned a lot from it. I wasn’t sure about how it would turn out with so much black in the back ground, but since he is so dynamically illuminated, I didn’t think this painting needed much else.
