Bridget Hall (2009)

here is the Bridget Hall painting i based off of that Steven Meisel portrait.  added this quote about her by Stephane Marais from this 1994 Vogue profile of Ms. Hall where he basically sums her up as this classic beauty amongst a sea of trendy faces.  which is funny since today it's rare to get a girl who can seemingly last more than a few seasons before a new face captures our attention.
it took me awhile i think to get this painting right for me - i guess you have those preconceived notions in your head as to how the painting should turn out and sometimes it takes a different path.  which can never be a bad thing.  at some point of the process you gotta let yourself go and just see the work come to life.  and most times, like with Ms. Hall, it can turn out quite nicely.
