"Spirit of Aretha," 4" x 4", egg tempera on Kelmscott vellum (available from my website) (c) Mona Diane Conner 2009
The preceding step (#5) for the "Spirit of Aretha"
Just one more post of Aretha Franklin, since her portrait is finally completed! Sometimes it takes me a while to return to a painting since I generally have 4 or 5 paintings and commissions in various stages of completion at one time. Since it's been a while, I thought it would be interesting to add this re-post of the preceding step.
