Elizabeth Peyton

Jarvis/ 1996/ Oil on Board/ 11×14″ (Jarvis Cocker, Musician)

Elizabeth Peyton is an American artist best known for her portrait paintings of celebrities and royalty.  Part of Peyton’s methodology is working from photographs which are either taken herself or by other people.  Peyton acknowledges the importance of photography as an inspiration source for her art.  I like the thin washy glazes she applies to her work which almost look like watercolour.
