Yet another in this series of music-themed portraits, this time depicting probably my greatest musical inspiration... Prince.
I could write all night about the man and his music. His back catalogue is pretty much the soundtrack to my whole life. I've had the privilege of seeing him live a few times and the man is a force of nature.
When depicting him I decided to go back to the Prince I first met and grew up with as a kid. I remember the first time I saw the 'When Doves Cry' video, with him on that bike.. I pretty much fell in love with the guy straight away. Nothing's been the same since.
I could have worked on this forever, but as with the others, this is just the first stage in the process for a larger piece. I just hope I've managed to capture some sense of his enduring presence.
