MIKEY ESPINOSA -HUEVEMBER 2016

Mikey Espinosa - Huevember 2016 collageDuring November 2016, there was an instagram hashtag that I decided join called Huevember where each day you follow a colour wheel and create an art piece for that day. Unfortunately I didn’t get to finish it because  I was occupied with other pieces of art work that needed to be finished, BUT I would still like to share the pieces I was able to do! 🙂 If you have the chance, you should do it, it really keeps you on your toes and your creativity on a roll.

Mikey Espinosa – Harmony

I started with doodling a couple, two contrasting beings in an embrace.

After applying watercolour to express mood and tone , I decided to add detail to the bodies. The colder colours have a softer detail focusing on leaves, vines, flowers and soft lines whereas the warmer colours use wooden patterns using sharper lines to harden the image as a whole.

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! 🙂
