painting in progress of Frida Kahlo by Corne Akkers

On track with my Frida Kahlo project, based on my drawing ‘Sans titre – 11-10-18’. Getting the resemblance right. Covid-19 has entered the scene as well. Lots of work to do.

Surrealistic Frida Kahlo nude graphite pencil drawing

I am not sure what I thought about her, except for her strong personality. I sometimes liked her paintings and then I didn’t. What I have in common with her is that we both are autodidacts and that we like(d) to go our own way in life. Somehow I always come across her once in a while and that is why I decided to draw her. I saw a lovely – rare – nude photograph and thought I’d include her in my sans titre / roundism series.
