John Fairhurst

During my “Artist-in-Residence” the penultimate band on stage at The Muni on the final night of The Great British Rhythm & Blues Festival 2017 was John Fairhurst. I had only seen this band on Youtube so I was really looking forward to seeing them live….and they did NOT disappoint!

During the gig I sketched rapidly in my sketchbook using a Bic ball-point pen. See below:

Eventually an oil on canvas was started and earlier today the painting was finished…here’s the final painting….


…and here’s a close up detail.
