David Coverdale (born 22 September 1951) is an English rock singer best known for his work with Whitesnake, a hard rock band he founded in 1978. Before Whitesnake, Coverdale was the lead singer of Deep Purple from 1973 to 1976, after which he established his solo career. A collaboration with ex-Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page resulted in a ‚”Coverdale-Page’” studio album in 1993 that was subsequently certified platinum.In 2016, Coverdale was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Deep Purple, giving one of the band’s induction speeches. Coverdale is known in particular for his powerful, blues-tinged voice as well as his vibrant, caring, and loving stage persona. His vocal range is considered to be that of a leggero tenor.
I’ve finished work on a new portrait of one of the world’s greatest singers, David Coverdale. I really wanted to create a very realistic portrait fully reflecting not only the external appearance but also showing the character traits and the extraordinary charismatic personality of this exceptional and extremely talented artist. That’s why it wasn’t an easy portrait for me.
