This painting was previously part of my private collection and has not been available to purchase until now. Inspired like millions of people around the planet by "The Dark Knight" and Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker, I set out to really do justice to the essence and feeling of the role that he brought to life. It is a dark and moody piece and is made all the more creepy by the faded face in the sky that the viewer might be able to just make out. This I leave up to the interpretation of the viewer. The paint was applied as if applying make-up to a real face and I believe that this technique brings you a little closer the the actual feeling of the character.
Note: Painting has been cleaned and varnished to bring out the original color and to protect the painting.
This painting is signed on the front and includes my Certificate of Authenticity.
