A work in progress (Frida)

I am feeling like having a Frida revival. I am totally fascinated by her story and the simplicity but brutal honesty of her work. And, needless to say, she is a style icon (facial hair optional).

So I've decided to investigate her by drawing her.

I have started taking pics at different stages for you to see how I work. I actually love doing portraits, and have been missing it with all the linear hair work and paper cutting. There's still work left to do (although I do like the "unfinished" look, and it's more richly coloured in real life).
This is based on a picture by Nickolas Muray.

What did you think?
