The Redhead...

I first saw this picture at the Getty in 2009 Paul Outerbridge is the photographer. This photo is from 1939 and titled" The Redhead". I love this photo because, it's timeless and I had to pay homage to it. Lately I had an urge to paint a black and white photo and this one I thought would be fun. I over exposed the picture then blew it up onto a projector(I know it's cheating). I just got the basic outline of it as you can see in hour one then from there I just had fun. I've invested 6 hours into it so far and I was waiting for the paint to dry to add another layer and make the painting richer.
This painting is oil on canvas 28X36
These are hours 1, 3, 5, 6 of the paint
