Pancho Villa in Living Color
The newest oil in the Mexican Revolutionary Series I have been painting for Mr. J. Arce is non other than Pancho Villa. Painted using four small black and white photos, a lot of this was very interpretive. Although it was a challenge to get the likeness right, it was also fun to invent the man's mood. I plan to offer limited edition prints toward the end of this month, and I should have limited edition prints of Emiliano Zapata, Villa's comrade in arms available in my eBay store by the second week in January.
