Deborah Humble sang the role of Amneris in Aida in Melbourne recently and I sketched her while she practised in Sydney. That was in March but the boxes of kitchen cupboards blocked access to my studio until last month and I couldn't paint the portrait I had waiting in my head. When I did eventually pick up the brush it was Deborah's wonderful mane of auburn hair that wanted to be painted, not my internal images of Aida. So that is what happened and this is the portrait.
Yesterday I finished uploading the portrait and also some pictures of progress of the painting.
