Thought I would have a go at something with a bit of a storyline instead of just finding a face and painting away.

First I thought I might try using a track of music something from Mr Bowie. while looking up the lyrics I found a connection to the book and film 1984 so using a few stills from the film as reference I developed an idea.

Trying still to keep my painting loose,   scratched out a composition and started to paint.

see my progress as I reworked this a few times to where I am now, finished I think…
