‘Hendrix on Blue’ is a minimal color portrait of the music legend Jimi Hendrix using acrylic paints on a gallery quality canvas. I had been going through a wee bit of a Jimi phase, listening to the Jimi Hendrix Experience and an earlier commissioned piece I did of the musician on reclaimed wood.
“See, that’s nothing but blues, that’s all I’m singing about. It’s today’s blues.”
With ‘Hendrix on Blue’ I wanted to create a bit more depth than my previous work on the reclaimed wood, however I still wanted to keep the color palette to a minimum. To carry out this effect I built up the colors on layers.
