“There are far worse things awaiting man than death.”
Day 4 has arrived of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge and I’m already starting to feel the pressures, haha. One of the subject matters that I wanted to tackle during the challenge is to do some portrait painting. I am also a huge fan of old/classic horror and monster movies. So, for my first portrait I instantly went to the first talking horror movie character, Dracula. Bela Lugosi’s rendition of Dracula is the version most people think of when they visualize the character. It’s hard not to hear his Hungarian accent when I think of some of the classic quotes from the movie-
“Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.”
His performance made quite a reaction to audiences in 1931. And there are still very haunting moments from Bela in the film. I’m sure the movie comes off quite differently to current day audiences. But, for me it is still very enjoyable.
“To die, to be really dead, that must be glorious .”
There will be more horror stars coming this month. And, also some portraits of others during those golden days of Hollywood.
This painting is available for sale for $50.00
