Time Out New York: Rosie O'Donnell

This week's "Hot Seat" portrait for Time Out New York is Rosie O'Donnell!

Pretty much from the get-go, I knew how I wanted to approach this one--black and white, with a very bright, flat background, going for a brash, almost fashion-y look, and this piece came together very quickly and easily.

Once I had the portrait, I tried some different colors, but the bright magenta worked best (and that was the first color I saw in my head), and it all fell into place. Thanks Rosie!

Looks great! I like the background color also.

I was reading the description as fast as I could before the image loaded. So, I had an idea of what it might look like before it revealed itself. And then, BAM!

It was even better than I thought it would be.

Great job as always!

Thanks! I think the bground color is my favorite part of the piece.


Interesting...never thought of trying to do that. I should add an .mp3 of a drumroll.
