I have just finished this caricature probably more a portrait digital painting of Jimi Hendrix. I tried to keep it a little looser than the Shane Nicholson painting. I'm still playing around with the digital side, it's all heaps of fun. I can't decide whether I like the white or the pinky background.

I felt the urge to draw late one night a few weeks ago & decided to sketch Shane Nicholson & paint it digitally. After painting for hours I decided I wasn't happy with the likeness & left it. After looking at a photo of Shane yesterday I finally realised what the problem was, even though he has a strong jaw I had made it far too wide. Anyway I am much happier with this result. I love Shane's music & listened to the amazing album Rattlin' Bones while I painted this.
