I'm glad I started again after my previous "Dettol" incident as the painting is now finished, varnished and framed. I've got a while before I have to enter it into the competition, but I'm pleased with how it has gone.
It's been challenging working from a black and white image and adding in my own colours, trying to work out what they might be! I used old portraits to get hair colour but it was difficult to see the eye colour and the clothes are a guess! The hand holding the brush is to help the viewer with context (for those who don't know who she is), and it is my hand!
I hope it gets through to exhibition, as it would be nice for a few more people to be made aware of Dame Laura Knight and her accomplishments.
