So today I painted Stephania whom I did a shoot with in Carnaby street, Central London. I recommend it as a location if you’re looking to do shoots. Stephania was brilliant and really funny, and when I came across one of her pictures as I was setting up my 2 shinny new websites, I thought she’d make a great painting.
I originally shot the picture in colour and it only came to life after I converted it to Black and White. Her pink dress and gold stiletoes looked cool, but in Black and White she looks like a Bride.
So now onto the painting, thanks to Global Street Art for sorting out the wall I got the perfect spot to paint the picture. Or so I thought! No I’m thenkful to have had this spot, but man, the amount of vans, trucks and taxis going through this little bend at speed, was something. And then there was the wind. It took me 8 hours from start to finish where it normally takes me 5, but the wind created a lot of overspray I had to fix.
But regardless of all that, I’m very happy about the result, and this one might be one I choose to produce as a print, more on that very soon…
See you soon,
