Miss Frida, The Portrait (Part II)

After posting the first image of Frida's portrait, I attached the (somewhat flimsy) page to a heavier paper, in order to give the entire thing more strength. Then, I applied oil pastels to the work, to define the color better (make it look more like her). Afterward, I used turpentine to blend the colors.

The result makes me smile :)

Beautiful work. Your piece is a great alternative to mosaics, which I'm a big fan of (along with dogs.) Well done.
