Scored Shirtless – The Shirtless Musician Series – 5×7 Acrylic on Canvas Panels

‘Tis the season for bad puns. Scored Shirtless is my recent painting project on shirtless musicians I’ve photographed.  I haven’t sifted through all the photos in my library, but I think I found enough for now.

My favorite is #4 Mr. Damian of Fucked Up. I’m pleased with the light and shadow on his belly.

Wiz Khalifa #3 was the most difficult because of the tattoos on the original photo.  I left them out of the painting, just because it would’ve taken way too long for me to complete.

Enjoy!  All paintings are acrylic on 5×7 canvas panel:
