Tann Starr Sketchbook Chronicles: Angelina Jolie Portraits





Today we start the mixed media paintings of one of my fave people, Angelina Jolie. Previously, I sketched a few graphites and inked a couple of pages trying to figure out what type of expression I'd like to capture for AJ's portrait. I spent the entire day on lock-down having another Angelina Jolie movie marathon while my neighbors were kind enough to feed me (Nydia does that a lot when I start obsessing over my drawings - LOL).

We're going to start another digital film for the mixed media paintings and do a bit of time lapse photography so you can see the next three Angelina's being created. I promised I'd let you guys see what I do when I play in my paint so stay tuned for a sneak peek at what's coming to the summer salon at Ward Nasse.

This YouTube gives you a brief behind the scenes peek at creating one of the sketches selected for the Women In Art 2011 Exhibition. We're still framing pages from my sketchbooks so I may be swapping out a couple of pieces during the interim of the exhibit because I'm having a bit of fun meeting new people who love Angelina's work and I thank you all for the kind e-mails. ;-)

You do very nice work. I am happy when someone with talent actually takes the time to develop same.

Tann, wow! I enjoyed your blog post. I would think it would be challenging to draw and film at the same time. Remarkable likeness.  My favorite Angelina movie is "Mr. and Mrs. Smith."  Thanks for post, loved the music too, btw.

Thank you, Jon. :-) Pamela, I just finished watching Mr and Mrs Smith and am about to put Gia on. Angelina is amazing and I am enjoying every minute of my research. My kids love the Tomb Raiders. ;-)

Good morning C, very cool, I loved watching how you developed the drawing. You are certainly multi talented!

Fascinating and mesmerizing.  I also like the music! Thanks.

Thank you, Andrea. I love creating art. It relaxes me. :-) Thank you, Peggy. I'm working on a new music track and will probably go into the studio on Tuesday to record it. :-)

What talent! You simply amaze me - I'll have to jump over to your blog more often to see what you are up too!

Well done!  Thanks for showing us a behind the scenes glimpse at how much work and time it really takes to get a beautiful drawing done.

Wow, Carolyn… you’re very talented. Beautiful sketches! And congratulations on having your sketches selected for the Exhibit.

Thank you, Brenda and Bill. The gallery was mad fun. We stayed after hours, then did an after party at Peeps and nightcapped at a penthouse with amazing views of Manhattan. I'm a very happy camper. :-)
