    Brick & Maggie (Cat On A Hot Tin Roof)

    Paul Newman & Elizabeth Taylor. An update of the iconic movie poster. This was started on Bristol board, traditionally, then finessed digitally in AR.

    Pat - Thank you. I love movies, and reference them often. This was on cable, and I remembered this Poster from it. I found it, and decided to update it. Newman is completely covered in the orig., and Liz is in a white slip (That White Slip!)

    They look amazing, Skylar, just as they were.
    If I can throw a wish, I'd like to see some variation in Liz' body, under her arm. Perhaps a curved, diagonal shadow to suggest the waist of her rounded forms.

    I lost my breath for a second with this painting, how fascinating it is!!!! Of course I have a pang of envy how it is painted so well! However, this painting also give a push to continue praticing also.

    When I was growing up in Thailand, movie theters used the huge posters painted by hand. I used to go hanging around those artists watching them (when my father allowed it), this painting really reminds me of those good old days, very pleasant, thanks.

    So well done my friend!!!

    BarnBurner - Thanks. It takes some doing to get features correct.
    Bob - Thank you! Yes! You're Right. I have corrected it - and she looks better.
    Sandy, E+ - Thank you both so much!
    Jas - Thanks so much! When I had my studio in L.A., I was just down from one of the specialty shops that handpainted large posters & billboards for movies and Record Albums - Quite a treat to see.
