So during July I tried again and again to fulfill a commission for a customer. One that I’m slightly ashamed to admit I messed up repeatedly to the point of ruing three separate canvases before getting it right. I did however nail it in the end.
The brief was fairly simple; A painting of three of the main characters from the hit AMC show Breaking bad, namely Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and Mike Ehrmantraut.
After a while of playing around making up some mock montages from screen shots from the show we finally settled on a design incorporating not only the three characters but also the RV, Wasp decals and a toxic sign bearing the distinctive Heisenberg hat and glasses.
The original colour scheme was chosen by the customer, green, to represent his Irish roots, (Plus once he found out you could get neon green he was totally hooked), the orange was added by myself for extra pop and to tie further in with the Irish connection.
I’m glad to say that he’s very happy with it and it hangs pride of place on his wall.
