Though originally we wanted to do a proper collabo (i.e. we get on each other's canvas), we started working on each other's portrait (promised not to show the result until it's done) and then decided to just go all the way. We worked on our pieces from 9pm to 6am straight (!), and even after spending 7 hrs drawing her face, I wasn't satisfied with the result, so I took mine home and changed her face a lil bit.
I had in mind doing a Fly Lady Di/Mona Lisa in Lichiban/Klimt style...below is the result (before the final version of the face).
In the meanwhile, my camera was stolen/lost so I couldn't take a good picture of the final piece:( Check more pictures from Diana's going-away party where I delivered the piece on her blog...this is the final piece.
Di's rendition of me. I love how she gave an emotional intensity and dynamism to my face with my hair flying. Great job, thank you!!! Feel very lucky to own one of her pieces.
