Frida Kahlo Progress Video - Crossover Project

Sometimes my fine art and illustration work overlap and they definitely have in my 'Inspiring Women' illustrated portrait series which features amazing women in history.  The series is growing and the first six portraits can be viewed on my website here (under Commercial & Editorial illustration).  The portraits of Boudicca and Amy Johnson were published in 'Women In History III' recently and it looks likely the whole series will be published as a book in the not too distant future. This artwork and others are available as art prints and on a range of products, go to SHOP on my website: www.bethida.co.uk to view. 

Here is a progress video of my Frida Kahlo illustration:

'Adoption'Progress Pictures

Here are some progress pictures of 'Adoption' (100cm x 150cm paint on canvas).  I don't usually change colours whilst painting but the blue wasn't quite working for me.  The painting is a celebration of adoption (physical and spiritual) and I think the warm, ethereal yellow was the right choice in the end.
