The Fine Art InfluenceThis drawing ushers in a new era in my work. Perhaps it would be more acurate to say that it returns my work to what intially inspired me to seriously pursue art as a precocious teenager. Along with my comic art and illustration influences there was also a fine art influence. The work and of artists such Burne-Jones, JW Waterhouse, Lord Leighton, Alphonse Mucha, Carlos Schwab, Harry Clarke, Joaquin Sorolla, Jeffery Jones, Barry Windsor-Smith, Bernie Wrightson, and Michael Wm Kaluta was my introduction to fine art. My fine art influence has been absent from my work for far too long. With this drawing based on a painting by Renaissance painter, Andrea Solari I intend to fully reincorporate my fine art influence back into my work, and thus begin a new chapter.
