Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Oil on Canvas, 2010

So, Janelle Monae is pretty amazing.
I saw her live for the first time a couple weeks ago here in Philadelphia.
And I was blown away. Blooown away.
I did this portrait in about 2 hours. I try to paint pretty quickly when I’m making these time-lapse videos. I’ll probably go back into the painting later to just clean it up – add more details, fix anything that needs to be fixed, check the proportions of her face, etc…

Check out the video!
