New portrait painting of Carlotta Valdes

A big thank you to my client for re-introducing me to the Alfred Hitchcock film, Vertigo and for commissioning this new portrait of Carlotta.  Never in a million years would I have otherwise thought of making this painting.  But it's been fascinating and I'm glad I did it!

Here are clips of all the work-in-progress stages on this painting:

Hi Bee
Hope you are well.
Great painting and a clever video of the wip.
All the best to you.

Thanks Trevor :) I'm fine thanks. I've just been admiring your latest Venice wip video. Intrigued to know where you put the camera so as not to get in your way while working. Still images will have to suffice for me, but I admire the way you do it. I work so slowly. I think people would fall asleep LOL!
Cheers
