thumbnail portrait of Corne Akkers

Bettie has her own tomb and burger diner now. Working on the texture of the desert. I am finding ways to render rocky pebbles, rubble and sandy structures.

Almost all structures have been put in. I will spend months to come to harmonize parts, enhance coherence, tonal rhythyms and balancing out colours.

More to come in my new painting ‘The Restoration of Bettie Page’. Click here, here and here to see older blogs on this topic.
