Valérie Clerc - Drawing and Embroidery
Valérie Clerc made this drawing of Russell and also sent in an embroidery, which she drew on canvas first before she made it.
Edit February 2: Four more artworks made by Valérie were added. In her own words:
- I used the same drawing but worked it differently in painting
- I made another drawing inspired by a rare photo of Russell in his bright, multicolored stage costume
New contribution, April 8, 2022. Valérie sent me the pictures below and gave an excellent description of her work as follows:
I am pleased to send you photos of my latest Sparks work: the making of the Russell rag doll and the finished doll as well as the two embroidered canvases for a handbag.
The rag doll's costume is inspired by photos taken by fans at Sparks' February concert in Los Angeles. The work took me ten days due to six hours a day. 'Cause it's the first rag doll I've made
Both canvases are inspired by drawings of Ron and Russell. I attach the two original drawings but I did not create them myself. I don't know the name of the creator. I redrew them on canvas and then I embroidered the canvas. This work took me three weeks because of six hours a day.
