The Polka Dot Hat
(Above) The Polka Dot Hat
15.5cm x 18cm
Mixed media (Caran d'ache Neocolour II water-soluble wax crayons, Daler Rowney FW acrylic inks, Windsor & Newton Indian ink) on 100% cotton rag, acid-free paper (200g).
As with "The Spanish Hat" and "Flower Power" (see the two posts immediately before this one), this painting was developed from a drawing inspired by a thumbnail photograph that I saw on the Internet of French actress Leslie Caron (Gigi) in a polka dot hat and dress.
