I painted a portrait of Frida Kahlo last August, but wasn't thrilled with her skin tones or the background, so I pulled it out again and reworked it. Her skin tones are warmer now, so she doesn't look like a vampire! I used a limited palette (blue, red, yellow, and white), and made the background more subtle. Overall, more harmonious and successful, I think.
I'm usually not fond of do-overs, but this one was worth saving. So happy I revisited her!
