James Dean: Before he was discovered

Although it’s a different look than what the world is used to seeing, I've always enjoyed these early shots of taken of James Dean just as his career was beginning. When I did this, I was experimenting with "metallic" paint; I only used black, white, and copper to produce this. In the right light, the copper gives off a slight shimmer. It’s difficult to blend with, but again, overall, I was happy with the finished result. To see more of my paintings, visit my regular website.
