The background is almost entirely done! Phew that took a lot of mixing 😅 I’ve never done a figure or portrait in acrylic paint, so I’m a bit nervous to start on her face!
I’m pretty comfortable with pencil portraits (scroll far back enough on my profile and you’ll see!), but paint is a whole new medium for me when it comes to painting people.
Wish me luck! 😊

Spent the afternoon at the Brooklyn Museum seeing “Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving,” which was wonderful. In addition to art there were items from her life including clothes, jewelry, custom made corsets, and her favourite makeup including Everything’s Rosy lipstick by Revlon. There were also loads of photos of Kahlo and her family including this adorable portrait taken by her father when she was 12. #fridakahlo#artist#art#mexicanart#mexicanculture#brooklynmuseum#brooklyn#newyorkcity#nyc
Our celebration of women artists continues with The Aguilar Sisters (Josefina, Guillermina, Irene & Concepción), who create painted clay work that captures the daily activities and passions of pueblo life in rural Mexico.
