A Liverpudlian legend, this gouache canvas painting depicts John Lennon. Lennon shone to worldwide fame as founder, cowriter, and rhythm guitarist of The Beatles. With his distinguished and perceptible look and personality, Haydn was urged to paint his portrait.
Haydn loves portraiture, mainly for it’s unique challenge. One brush mark or pencil mark can drastically change a person’s likeness. This is what makes portrait art so interesting in Haydn’s eyes. This portrait is no different. This gouache canvas painting was no different.
The painting shows Lennon, looking straight at the viewer, with his iconic circle glasses and neutral expression. It’s a strong composition, with the head filling most of the image. Painted with gouache and a limited colour palette, this piece stands at 40.0 x 30.0cm, 1.5cm deep. This painting is available to purchase from Haydn’s shop. Making a great addition to your home or as a gift. Lennon is a music icon who is still relevant today as he was back in the 60’s.
