WIP: Phenomenal Woman

Time-lapse video of my first pass on the dress in my biggest painting (30 x 30 inches) for my Flawless series. This series is about refusing to apologize for femininity, recognizing that pretty isn't weak. The painting will be titled Phenomenal Woman* after the Maya Angelou poem, and will be featured in my upcoming group show, Bold Beauty, opening November 19, 2016. 

*I first read this poem in this version illustrated by Gavin Aung Than of Zen Pencils, who creates "cartoon quotes from inspirational folks." There is a lot of great stuff on there, check it out!
