I set a goal to produce a colorful portrait in an afternoon – rather than working on it bit by bit over the course of a week or two. I wanted to be more loose with the brush – to incorporate some of the aspects that I like in abstracts into a portrait. So, I worked quickly, with less thought to fine details and more thought to the overall form. I still put in some details around the eyes, because I just cannot leave eyes too undefined. I think I accomplished those goals. Maybe a little too loose?
Why Cher? I’m fairly certain that there is a law which states you must, sooner or later, paint a diva. Probably a federal statute or some such.
