Portrait: Frida Kahlo

After the most recent issue of Flow magazine reigniting my love for the beautiful and inspiring Frida Kahlo, with her tribute article and illustrated cover, I decided to spent my day off painting her.Normally, I use charcoals to achieve super realistic portraits, however being inspired by her own beautiful colourful and stylised paintings, I decided to make a quirky water colour tribute! 164 more words
