This is a watercolor sketch/study of Billy Joel. The study is from one of his recent shows, and reflects a gestural approach to the subject.
Here is a watercolor (with hints of Gouache) which I created during the 2017 NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors defeated Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to take the title.
I really enjoy the minimalist approach in these images, as they require great concentration, while simultaneously maintaining a gestural freedom in the creative process. These tend to be “hit or miss”.
….I think this was a hit…
