The Seven-Per-Cent Solution
Another period movie that demanded a period approach to capture the
film's essence. This style is almost vintage Alphonse Mucha, Art
Nouveau. With the black line work and tinted color it hearkens us
back to the early years of the century. Drew's technical
and education is really evident in his ability to work in someone
style and remain true to the spirit as well.
His painting was also radically altered by request after it was finished. A new portrait of Nicol Williamson was requested. Drew painted the new head on a seperate piece of paper, cut it out and glued it over the original portrait. But for the slight difference in the level of the paper, is is very hard to detect.
