ELIZABETH TAYLOR

One of the most iconic stars of all time. Was it her acting or her love life that made her so famous? Probably both. Elizabeth Taylor is a real Hollywood legend.

During the making of my first Elizabeth Taylor portrait back in 2018, it was hard not to fall in love with her beautiful appearance. In this series, I’ve portrayed her peaceful look by the use of 44 layers of paint.

For this new series, I’ve taken two strong elements of the earlier series. From 2015 until 2017 my artworks primarily had colorful background layers but the top layers were black, grey, and white. From 2018 until 2020 I opted for softer pastel backgrounds and more expressive and realistically colored portraits. For this series, I’ve combined colorful backgrounds with realistically colored portraits. The best of both worlds.
