Frida II

 A second go at drawing Frida Kahlo...

A much more successful likeness than the first, and even though it has its share of imperfections, I really like this drawing. I feel that I'm achieving a much better sense of dimension with my recent work; each one, a step in the right direction.

"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?" - Frida Kahlo

"Painting completed my life." - Frida Kahlo

"I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim,
 and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling." - Frida Kahlo
