Black and White Keira

Keira Knightley,
Acrylic craft paint, 18X24

i am so proud of my newest painting!....i call this style, pop art mixed with Kat's black and white, but with some blue in the background and chair....i'm starting to really love my black and white paintings! exploring fabric and hair...making it cartoon-y yet realistic is fun, and i really like this "style" of how i paint....and i'm quite proud of my paintings...since i'm not a painter, i just like to paint, if u get that?...i don't put myself in the "painting box", i like to think there is no box! lol

& the Style goes on

me, in Russian outfit

A collection of friends done in my new style 

top row: me, Melissa, Jayna
bottom: Lucy, Darla, Ashley

This is a little doodle style i came up with, i like it, it's simple and yet has a slight retro feel to it, i think. + it's a challenge making these look like the ppl they represent. it's all in the hair and lips.
