An original oil painting based on the famous Beatle founder John Lennon
This work is painted on linen and is the third portrait of the iconic singer-songwriter.
Lennon continues to be a very popular figure and this has helped me sell the previous two portraits. This has motivated this third image.
During the process, I listened to John Lennon in my studio whilst painting and then watch and listen to interviews. It is a fascinating progression of getting to know someone as I concentrate on the image and the heart of the subject. I became increasingly aware of John Lennon’s sensitive yet commanding personality.
I have aimed to capture his sensitivity in this work
