Kate Bush

UPDATE: I decided to adjust the hair on my Kate Bush portrait.  I felt it was just too colorful and overpowering.  I essentially painted over most of the green and yellow with black paint.  I also toned down the exiting colors and gave them softer edges.  I’m much happier with the new look.KateBushPainting2

This was my first 16″x20″ painting, and it was a little bit of an experiment for me.  I painted Kate’s face as usual and added colorful flourishes over her hair using a palette knife.  My original mock-up had way less color, so I might have overdone the effect a bit.  Overall, I’m happy with it.

Watch this time lapse video to see how I made the painting:
