“Travest Parkes” is a painting I did trying to emulate the styles from two of my favorite artists, contemporary illustrator Travest Charest and painter Michael Parkes. While both artists are seemingly at opposite ends of the art spectrum in both style and technique, they both share the common interest of dynamic fantasy based imagery. This is the result of melding the styles of these two artists into one image. Oil on gouache paper, 1999.
