Artistic Process of Birthday Gift for Friend from Concept to Reference to Sketch to Painting One to Painting Two : Finished Product
This is a gift I made for a friend – his name starts with the letter “K” – he loves to play cards and is a huge music fan. Also gay, the Queen reference is a joke – though in German a D is used for the Queen card – a play on using his initial as the letter on the card. The first attempt turned out to be a disaster, way too dark to represent something appropriate for my lighthearted friend. The completed project (second attempt) went over much better.
