Helen Mirren

Actress Helen Mirren has a new movie out, a spy thriller called Red, but I didnt't really care about that--I just wanted to play with the contrast of her bright white hair and a totally black background, which was what I saw in my head when I first thought of doing a portrait.

Of course, Ms. Mirren's hair isn't quite that white, but again it was the contrast I was most interested in. I briefly considered adding a Hollywood Glamor-type light fade in the background, but finally decided this was fine the way it was.
