Frida Kahlo

8.5x5.5 mixed media collage on Bienfang sketchbook finished today.  Yesterday I began sketching Frida using black Tombow brush pen and then added water for a monochromatic image as was working with only a black & white photo.  Color was needed as was collage indicative of the colorful artist she was.  Yellow Montana acrylic marker made up the background; watercolor and gouache used on her face and neck.  Since I had her nose too long I simply collaged layers of white tissue paper w/ matte medium over that area then repainted when dry.
