a little bit of a few of my favourite things combined
pin-ups, skulls, tiki, spooky gothic...
This is an oil on canvas 16x24" portrait of the ridiculously gorgeous Missy Malone with thanks to CherryBombRock Photography for use of their reference photo found here [link]
It was a very kitsch n cute original photo, lots of turquoise n pink, but i wanted to make it my own as well as go a lot darker with it and explore the whole Death and the Maiden theme, although I think my modern day maiden pretty much has the measure of Death!
All criticism gratefully received, I am so used to painting big eyed Blythes at this point you forget what its like to paint human proportions lol!
In the flesh the painting is much more blended and there's much more lovely tones in the face, oh well, I'm no David Bailey!
