Frida & Me

The Making of… ‘Frida & Me’:

This step by step record of the process will show you how ‘Frida & Me’ evolved from gesture sketch to finished painting. You’ll find the secondary & primary images I referenced, plus a selection of ‘behind the scenes’ trial photographs that were not used in the final composition. This is my most complete documentation of one of my creative processes, and will give you an insight into one specific way in which I work.
