Mikey Espinosa – Miss Saigon painting

Mikey Espinosa - Sun and MoonI recently visited the 25th year anniversary of Miss Saigon in Londons West End. I knew the songs and everything but never saw the actual performance. After watching it I was completely blown away by the show and talent and was inspired to develop the painting of the two lovers. I tried to express the nature and story of Miss Saigon in the painting and hopefully it shows!  Mikey Espinosa - Sun and Moon close upI was particularly inspired by the song Sun and Moon. I played the songs as I painted and the reprise was used for painting the female lead and the original version of Sun and Moon and the solo of the lead male ‘Why God why?’ was played when painting Chris (the lead male character.)Mikey Espinosa - Sun and Moon progress 1Mikey Espinosa - Sun and moon progress 2I’m currently putting together a video of the painting process and I can’t wait to share it with you! 🙂
