The Black Keys by theirison The Black Keys by theirison
Here is another painting for Rankin's Hunger Magazine.
It's an illustration of The Black Keys

Painted on Rives bfk paper
done with: Watercolor
Prismacolor Pencil
Acrylics
Water-Soluble Oil Pastels

There was some digital color correction done to set the mood (mostly the gray background) And to clean up those white shapes.

Original photograph for reference provided by Rankin. creator/owner of Hunger Magazine


SIDE NOTE: Just started an Instagram. Look for @erikjonesart
