I have spent the last couple of weeks putting together a piece for the "All Together Now" Beatles tribute show being held at Gallery Nucleus on Saturday July 7th. Part of the proceeds will be benefiting Doctors Without Borders. It was an interesting challenge for me since I paint almost exclusively in Photoshop these days. I knew that I was going to have to dust off the old art supply bin for this one. I started by creating the concept digitally.
I decided to use acrylics on board. I wanted to make the image dimensional so I painted each character and cut them out.
All that was left, was putting it all together.
Here are a couple more details:
So, there it is. It was hard to get back into the rhythm of traditional media, but it was a lot of fun. It makes me want to do it more. I can't wait for the show. It is going to feature some amazing artists (including my talented husband, David Au). You can check out his progress here. Hope you all can make it to the show!
