Masterpiece 2, Acrylic on canvas, 60 x 50 cm, 2020 by Gordon Render

About the work:

This one of an ongoing series entitled “Masterpieces”. I have chosen portraits done by various artists over the centuries that are all, rightly, considered masterpieces. They are painted using only the four colours used in colour printing – CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and “key” black). The process I use when painting these is the same as the printing process – I overlay the four colours one at a time. I have included a snap of the ongoing series with the images hanging (very haphazardly) on a wall. This particular one is from a self portrait by Rembrandt. I you can identify all the others – well done!
