Francoise Hardy Portrait
This is a portrait of one of my favorite singers Francoise Hardy, her popular music from the 60's have been a new discovery for me and ever since I've fallen in love with the music. I'm always very reluctant to do portraits since I feel like it's very easy to do extremely safe compositions and fall back on it as a result. It was interesting finding ways to make a simple portrait more narrative and interesting to look at. The process was surprisingly laborious, but because I'm looking for different stylistic choices along my breadth of work, a language was learned and will hopefully continue to develop. I'm not sure how well the likeness came through after the 'Zach Filter' but I like how the piece came out none the less.
