While leaving the movie theater after Civil War, I knew immediately that there would be a Winter Soldier painting in the works – it was one of those occasions where inspiration strikes and you just knew it had to be done.The character really caught my attention in the film, dark hair and blue eyes aside, and I was determined to capture his likeness in painting form and honor him in art. When I got home, I began gathering reference images and out of curiosity, looked up the actor who played the character.
Sebastian Stan. It didn’t take long to find out that this talented actor is also very sweet and charming, loves his fans – goes above and beyond for them, a true modern day gentleman in the way he treats others (examples
seen in interviews), and as a bonus, is the incidental Meme Lord. So I became a fan of the Bucky character and also the real life actor behind him, and both have been brightening my days ever since.
Initially I intended to do only one Winter Soldier painting, but in pursuit of capturing more intricate details and the different variations of the subject, additional paintings were created and the series grew into today’s
Bucky art collection.
