Portrait of a Unknown Woman

“Portrait  of an Unknown Woman” mixed media artwork inspired in Frieda Kahlo paintings…  be the judge.

Seems like lately everyone all over the web has an obsession with Frieda Kahlo paintings and portraits. So I decided to use it as inspiration to continue the string art portrait series. 

Oil pastels are a versatile but challenging medium you can add layers easily but the only way to blending that gives a smooth finish is your finger.

Within a few hours of work, the first stage of the portrait was completed. The portrait is not supposed to be similar to Frieda Kahlo work, the color in her painting is what inspired the portrait. Colors that were altered to create a bold statement and match my own art style.
