Charcoal / Indian Ink
Randy Rhoads – Indian Ink & Charcoal Portrait
My mixed media Randy Rhoads tribute portrait, created with passion and great respect.
I used Indian ink, then a mix of charcoal and grey pastel for the background and white acrylic paint to highlight the waistcoat polka dots.
I was lucky to see Randy play live with Ozzy in the UK at the Heavy Metal Holocaust in Stoke and on the Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman tours in Birmingham in the early eighties.
I was honoured to send a limited edition print of the portrait to Randy’s sister Kathy in California.
