I'm delighted to announce that the 6th subject for ACT is Gugu Mbatha-Raw! She's going to be brilliant to paint - http://www.joe-simpson.co.uk/gallery/act/
Chuffed that 'Black Mirror : San Junipero' won an Emmy for 'Outstanding Television Movie' starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw. My painting of her as Cleopatra should be finished in a couple of weeks...
Gugu Mbatha-Raw is coming to my studio this week to see my finished oil painting of her as Cleopatra - I'll post pictures of the painting when she's seen it... it's always slightly nerve racking! Here's an initial black and white study, Acrylic on Paper - 90 x 60cm.
Here's a background detail of my oil painting of Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Cleopatra, with guards in disco armour.
A work in progress preview of the background of my painting of Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Cleopatra. I'm painting like mad!
