An ode to one of world’s greatest bands : The Beatles. I bet you remember them : John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison en Ringo Starr. The portraits are made from black smalti in pop-art style. For the background i used 12 different tones of gold mosaic, to create a beautiful gradient. Please pay some attention to the two different styles of andamento i used. The classic andamento of the background gives a nice contrast to the modern style andamento of the portraits. Eventhough the gold makes the background is rather exurberant, the portraits of The Beatles come out really well because of the difference in andamento.
Did you know i also did a portrait on John Lennon ? You can see it here.
