These artworks are based on Marie Antoinette’s time at Le petit trianon where she was free from court protocol and enjoyed nature.
Let them eat cake (True Colours)
It used to be so nice
Nothing else can save me
Blooming in the fullness of her nature
These two artworks are made in a similar way with two different themes, one shows Marie Antoinette spending time in her garden at Le Petit Trianon and the other shows Crazy horse, he was at one with his horse when he went into battle. The text is from the Abba song S.O.S about love coming to an end. I thought this was appropriate for these two painting of these historical figures who both died at 37 years of age.

I have based this new artwork on the film The silence of the lambs. I didn’t want to use too obvious motifs and have used some of my other artwork in this painting: e.g Anne Boleyn and some anatomical drawings. I have used Oils for the background with gold leaf and decoupage to add depth.
Work in progress. Che Guevara painting. I have used acrylics for the base and then oil paints to create the camouflage pattern. I will be toning down the colours as soon as this layer is dry.
Start of new drawing which will carry on with the anatomical motifs. I have used the head of Rick Genest and will be finishing the anatomical part of the body. I was inspired by the drawings of Alphonse Mucha and will be using an art deco motif for the background. I will be using decouage along with a nature theme, which will consist of drawings of roses, butterflies and moths.
