The video above shows some of the stages I went through making the portrait. The most challenging aspects where painting her hair. Creating blends using collage takes more time because you need to print, cut and glue a greater range of toned paper. The result however was well worth all the effort! Jeremy showed his wife Sue the video and he told me she cried - in a good way! For me this is one of the most satisfying parts of marking work like this!
I am looking forward to painting more like this one in the future!
