Friday Catch Up 4Feb22

 Another exercise for the illustration course I am doing. We had to choose an artwork then do lots of versions of it, starting similar and them altering it in someway and using different media. I chose a self portrait by Frida Khalo painted in 1940. The original version by Frida is shown at the end.
