Björk in amethyst
watercolour, graphite, and acrylic on 30 cm x 40 cm paper
I was listening to a stellar mix, that a friend put together, of beautiful Björk songs, and felt absolutely inspired to paint this portrait. Vespertine is, without a doubt, my all-time favourite of her albums, so I wanted to capture the frost-sparkling, crystalline energy of the sound, while incorporating white swan feathers with delicacy and subtlety.
I'm definitely having a "violet" phase at the moment. I was drawn to keep the pallet simple and pure, keeping with amethyst and cold, pale blue hues.
