Frieda Kahlo is one of my favorite artists; her work has always inspired me. So I have decided to make a portrait painting of hers. She had a very distinct personality and is one of fashion icons as well. Her dressing style was very vibrant, colorful and iconic like her paintings. I choose to make a simplistic and not so realistic painting of her in my simplified style.
First I took some photographs of Frieda for reference and decided on all the features I wanted to include in my painting. Then I made a rough sketch of what I am planning to paint in my sketchbook, I also decided on what colors I would like to use.
