Going With the Flow


 "Going With the Flow" This was taken from a 60s era photograph of Twiggy by Richard Avedon. It was a very intricate portrait with the light reflecting perfectly off her billowing hair. I wanted to challenge myself to take something that intricate and strip it way down to basic shapes and just a few shades of gray. I finished it off with a coat of polyurethane gloss to bring back in the idea of reflected light. I love how this represents a single moment in time that could never be replicated. The title speaks to those moments you can't control and have to just step back and go with the flow.
