"No. I said... what kind of bird are you?"
– Moonrise Kingdom (2012)
A portrait on display at my cinema-inspired solo show MOMENTS
, which opened June 7th at NYC's Bottleneck Gallery.
I really really stared at a ton of old-timey portrait-paintings (John Singer Sargent, Vermeer, etc) for inspiration to do this piece. I wanted to get a traditional media feel and do the best job possible with this lovely moment from Moonrise Kingdom
(when Sam Shakusky first lays eyes on Suzy Bishop!) Digital painting from references sta.sh/09o5dua96nx
, many many hours, Adobe Photoshop + Cintiq 21UX tablet.STEP-BY-STEP PAINTING PROGRESS:
