My Basquiat Queen
The steps are below
Done with Gelatos and NeoColor Watercolor crayons
Next paint over magazine pages with warm and then cool colors. That is Gwen Stefani in an Ulta add. Also look for large test.
There are also small pieces of paper painted in the similar warm and cool paints. I glued on the cut-out of the head then added some pops of color.
I glued on torn pieces of paper and text and a small picture. I used the large word "Finally" as the base for her crown. Basquiat used the crown symbol in a lot of his work.
I added more gesso, stream of consciousness wording, little drawings, stars and scribbles and details on the face and hair.
I hope you enjoyed my process. See you for the next Basquiat!
