I absolutely adore the music of Mrs Jynx (aka Hannah Davidson). This is one of the portraits I’m most excited about as I’m not sure Hannah has anywhere near the recognition she deserves. I feel the same joy and pleasure from her creations as I do from Boards of Canada or Aphex Twin and I probably smile a lot more than I do when I listen to them. But I’ll do a proper post about her work when I’ve finished the portrait.
In the meantime this is my initial sketch in pencil and watercolour pencil over grey gesso. No oils planned on this one, as they take so long to dry – it’s acrylics all the way from tomorrow.
Here is a quick link if anyone would like to listen to Mrs Jynx’s perfectly sublime music. If you haven’t heard of her and you like electronic music (or cats) then you’re in for a treat.
Her album The Standoffish Cat on Amazon.
