ZADIE 2003 (12"x 12") (30cm x 30cm) ACRYLIC PAINT ON STRETCHED CANVAS.

Zadie was a journalist for the Telegraph when I worked for them and I saw a photograph of her in a magazine. I thought it might be worth painting a portrait of her as an exercise, which turned out quite good.

I started painting the whole canvas black and then formed the face by working into the wet paint with the lighter flesh colour;s.
