New Release – Robert Smith “THE CURE” Watercolor Painting Portrait –
Today post feature the release of my new watercolor painting a Fan Art portrait for my Collection “ART FOR MUSIC” a series inspired by music artists and by my passion for music. In this series I like to create artworks using several media, traditional watercolor paintings, ink drawings, digital art, photo manipulation and any other media that will inspire my creations.
The New Release of my watercolor painting is the Portrait of Robert Smith the musician lead singer, guitarist, lyricist, songwriter and the only consistent member of the iconic UK band “THE CURE” co-founded with Lol Tolhurst in 1976. I am a lifelong fan of this amazing band, their music has been and still the soundtrack of most of my life. From a long time I wanted to paint a portrait of Robert Smith but it didn’t happen until yesterday. For some bizarre reasons I felt the wish and urge to paint since I haven’t painted much during this week. I wanted to paint, I was searching online for inspiration and I got inspired to paint Robert portrait right after I came across a nice photo shared in one of the various Fan Groups of The Cure that I’ve joined on Facebook. That was the magic moment when I came across the color photo posted down below. I said to myself “today I am going to paint him!” I sat down and started to paint peacefully for hours listening my favorite albums of the band until the portrait was done! Isn’t amazing how creativity and inspiration works? Most of the time it strikes when you don’t even expect it! It’s fantastic! If ever Robert see my portrait I hope he likes it! ❤
The 2018 is a great year and a milestone for The Cure band because they are “Celebrating the 40 Years Anniversary 1978 – 2018” last July in Hyde Park, London, UK they celebrated with a great concert and more to come in 2019! They are such a wonderful band is great that they are playing better than ever and still together! I am so happy that I was able to paint my portrait during this milestone and commemorative year. I have attended their Concert in 2016 they came to US, Los Angeles during their North American Tour and I wrote a very detailed Blog post about that unforgettable and magic 3 hours concert I can’t wait to see them again.

This is the photo of “Robert Smith” that inspired my Portrait! What I loved is that he look you straight in the eyes!
My Painting Details: The portrait is a watercolor and ink painting in my signature style. I am very pleased and happy I really love how the portrait turned out.
