This has proved to be one of my most popular paintings. I was, like many, amazed at how good Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker was. It is such an iconic character now and as soon as I watched the movie in the cinema I knew I had to do a painting of him.
I chose to keep it dark, with the Joker almost coming out from the shadows. The painted image was based on several movie stills. The painting is sold. Prints are available.
