Farewell 2016 by vinny53 Farewell 2016 by vinny53
Acrylic on canvas, 60 x 70cm, 2017

At the end of 2016 I was struck by how many famous faces had sadly passed away during the year. I decided to paint this homage of six portraits - just some of the many who passed - the six are from left to right. Top row:-
David Bowie, Mohamed Ali, Andrew Sachs (Fawlty Towers)
Bottom row:-
Prince, Peter Vaughan, (Game of Thrones) and John Glenn.

They are all portrayed very well. It's really sad, but you honored their death well. Beautiful job.
