Sharing a tribute painting I did of Ruth Bader Ginsburg after she died in 2020. I — like many — are often moved to make tribute paintings when people die. Like we are trying to preserve their essence in a permanent form. I think it is meaningful.
The painting was done all in black ink wash on paper, with some touches of pen. For the mesh glove and lace collar I used masking fluid to create the look (much easier than painting every hole!). I was especially happy with how the masking fluid worked since it was the first time trying it over such a large area.
As always, thanks for viewing!
