I came across a picture of a LARGE painting of a face with a man screaming, and I thought I want to make one of those! But I wanted people I love and happy ones!
I LOVE Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby... do you? Oh those swooning songs... I listen to them way too often (ask my kids!)
So I decided to add them to my home. But to make a statement I went on a big scale.
Here is my process:
- I found two large canvas's
- Found the pictures on the internet of Frank and Bing and printed them off
- Then I went and photocopied my pictures onto transparent paper and blew them up with a projector
- Drew them on with pencil
And here is what I had so far:
Here is a close up:
I painted them with just black first.
Then I added the grey and DONE!
I make it sound so easy don't I? Well it was! and completely relaxing. It did take me a few days on an off.
I love Frank in his hat. It's the perfect character I need.
And Bing's bow tie is the perfect touch to old fashion as well.
I told you they were BIG!
I think I will hang them in my office. I love how they are having such a jolly 'ol time!
