The subject of this speed painting is another pop culture icon from my youth. Anyone who grew up in the 70s or 80s will remember Jeff Lynne, multi-talented leader of the Electric Light Orchestra. He was also the co-founder of the Traveling Wilburys and producer for the Beatles, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Randy Newman, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Regina Spektor among others. I loved his music (still do). I’ve always thought of him as one of the coolest musicians ever. I did this painting in 1 hour and 40 minutes. For my explanation of speed painting, see my blog article about my Speed Racer speed painting.
