ROYGBIV – Roy Orbison in Acrylic, 9 Nov 2015


A visual pun created with a portrait of Roy Orbison.  ROYGBIV.  I was thinking of putting his name above his head with each letters being different colors, but thought it worked best keeping it simple.

I’m happy with the outcome.

I also did a digital version with the letters GBIV in sign language.  I’m practicing hands right now so I thought it would be a fun idea.  I decided to do just a digital version of that one, instead of painting the hands.  So I took my hand drawings and Photoshopped them into the painting…though the drawings could’ve been photographed better so they’re all evenly toned.  That’s the bottom image.

Enjoy the pieces below…Mercy!
