When I was asked to do this great big Jane’s Addiction painting, I have to admit I wasn’t very familiar with their music.
Needless to say, I promptly created a Pandora station to rock out to while painting this portrait of Dave Navarro and Perry Farrell.
I used acrylic, oil pastel, graphite, and patterned papers that include J.A. sheet music and guitar tabs. Perry is playing a little air guitar and catching his breath while Dave takes center stage for a moment.
If you live in this area, go check it out at Vainisi’s and tell them Jenny sent ya:-)
This was fun, but now I’m putting back on my Etta James. Commission a Portrait
