I'm a great fan of long, thin compositions because not only do they present compositional challenges, I also feel they are significantly different from the norm.

When I embarked on this piece, I wanted to celebrate all the best that Blade Runner represents in fine Film Noir production as well as the main character of Rick Deckard played by Harrison Ford.

The following sequence of pictures shows my work process starting with the pencils on MDF board through to the final varnished painting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The finished painting was varnished and scanned.
