The number one tip for photographers when it comes to showcasing their work is that they should only show their best shots. Paintings aren’t much different. As for this painting I did, I can’t say it is one of my best works. I kind of regret adding the lavender details at the sides. I was supposed to do that trick where you add rock salt on a wet painting and patterns will come out. What happened was that the salt just melted along with the wet paint. Perhaps I did it wrong…I’m not so certain, but I wold definitely try again!

My inspiration for this particular work is Kate Moss. It’s this photo I found somewhere in Vogue. The image really got stuck in my head that I just had to paint it. Of course, I don’t want to just replicate an image, I wanted to give my own take with it…so I added the lavender details….

People have had differing opinions on this from my own. I thought that this was a failure whereas others say it’s not. What do you think?
