Every month, I profile an artist who inspires my own art, in several segments.
Much of Johanna Pieterman’s work is commissioned portraits. Here are a few that stand out.
And the Wind Became Crazy
This image is modeled after Boreas by John William Waterhouse. Stevie Nicks is the model.
That triquetra earring must have taken a while – it’s hard drawing Celtic symbols. Shyla’s hair is also pretty cool – I find it hard to make hair different colors without it looking wonky.
What kid wouldn’t think a portrait like this is super cool?
You may have noticed that Johanna Pieterman draws Stevie Nicks. A lot. This one doesn’t make a big deal out of it, though. (Neither does the first one, above.)
