“Vanity” – Portrait Painting by Sam Spratt

Jocelyn, the female winner of my portrait contest, wanted to be Zombified and brought somewhere into the 1920’s-1950’s. I actually colored her originally with very pastel/flat tones to create something of a vintage illustrated advertisement—but found her appearance too classy/dark to be an advertisement—even ironically so. As a result, I went back into the black and white and started reworking my painting to be a bit more photographic in feel.  Connect with my: portfolio website,  tumblr,  facebook artist’s page and twitter.
