Eric Clapton

For a while now I have been wanting to do a portrait of my favourite guitarists to adorn the walls of my music studio. This is my first one, of Eric Clapton. Deciding on the photo was the hardest part, but naturally I loved the black and white, as well as the dark background of this one. Painting it took a lot longer than I expected, but by using a grid, I eventually got the proportions right.
I intend to paint another one in a similar manner of Jimi Hendrix.
