Art Imitates Frida

I prefer using pastels for portraits.  There is a greater control over it.

Attempt at portrait in acrylics.  Used to oils and even with medium to thin, didn't like the texture of the paints.

I always thought was Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits were so cool. I decided to try a series of self-portraits for the same reason she chose herself as the subject. The above is pastel and acrylics. More to come as they are created.
