Commission: Dave COllison aka Roy Orbison

With an extensive vocal range and Orbison styling, Dave Collison's sets are accurately performed. Described as one of the closest look-and-sound-alikes of any tribute act, he regularly performs with the Trembling Wilburys.

I was fortunate to catch Dave recreating Roy Orbison's famous Black and White Night at the Half Moon Putney, where I'm resident artist.  With an experienced group of musicians, he performed the same set that dazzled an audience 30 years ago.  A great night to remember.

This portrait was commissioned by Dave COllison's partner to remember the occasion.
