Prince Illustration


Prince – Purple Rain Illustration
Pencil, Pen and Ink, Watercolor

Another installment in my series of work featuring musicians. This piece is again 22″ x 30″ on watercolor paper. I start by drawing the image in pencil followed with the line work with brush and pen and ink washes. The background is watercolor wash with splatter and dripping techniques.

I’m finishing them off by selecting a song and working type digitally on top. These are quite a bit of work but a great deal of fun!

Prince, Purple Rain

Prince Illustration Process

Prince Illustration Process Images.
Two process stages of an image of Prince. The first is the pencil drawing and the second adds the brush and ink stage. I’ll add some color next and finish it off with type from one of his songs. This is 22″ x 30″ on Arches cold pressed watercolor paper.
