Bob Marley by TroyRoberts
This is a painting of Bob Marley in his young years. It conveys a very energetic, and youthful feeling. Bob Marley was painted in acrylic using an indirect approach, starting with a drawing in pencil, continued by an underpainting, and later glazed with color.
In this vertically composed piece, the negative space shows the green luminous color in the background, contrasting with his dark glossy matted locks, and slightly tilted head expressing his youthful pride. His opened mouth gives the impression as though a bit surprised. However, his eyes somewhat looking away displays delight in his thoughts.
My goal for this acrylic painting, was to establish the personal qualities of the subject. Overall, this piece creates an inspiring atmosphere.
