playing round with bright mexican colours and photos digitally
Original sketch using charcoal
I have started an art journal prompt about the outrageousness of Frida Kahlo over at the Milliande site (click the colour links to see info about the artist). Whenever I look at an image of Frida I am always struck by her intense gaze full of a mixture of pain and defiance as she led a troubled, painful chaotic life. I wanted to capture an intense gaze along with the mono eyebrow and I think my sketch is somewhere between Frida Kahlo and Iggy Pop..lol! Wanted to have a play with a digi layout with the sketch so here is one using some painted backgrounds and photos of trees all "colour burned" using Serif DSA 2..great fun.
