For this week I wanted to do a painting of Chester Bennington who recently passed away. Linkin Park was the first real band I ever listened to (thanks to my mother who first showed me their music) and that shaped what music I'd be interested in later on in my life. Their music in general (along with many other people) has helped me through some difficult years. I only recently saw Linkin Park live on July 3rd, so I wanted to do a portrait of Chester in honour of his memory. I plan on working on this painting for my weekly speedpaintings until I feel happy with it.
