Friday 21 May - Friday 4 June
All Day

An online exhibition by Doodle Snout.

A selection of oil and watercolour portrait pieces depicting core moments from film and television moments over the last 50 years. The works in this exhibit are intended to capture the essence of each film through portrait work by focusing on the colours, the compositions, and the characters that mean all the difference between a psychedelic 70s classic, a cyberpunk 80s underdog, or a ground-breaking modern masterpiece.
