All the Lonely People

Theme: Inspired by a Beatles Song
Title: All the Lonely People

Observing from the shelter of my car one day, I sketched these three men going about their business. When the theme came up I knew exactly what Beatles Song I was going to interpret. “Eleanor Rigby” on the left, looking out her window at all the lonely people.

This started with a piece of deconstructive screen printed fabric.  I like the splotchiness of it.   The image was stitched through paper initially and then details added.  White painted highlights provide contrast.
