Portrait – Amy Winehouse

My second portrait is again an iconic British singer, but this one is sadly no longer with us. I chose to draw Amy Winehouse because she had such a distinct and unusual style. I also love her music and it felt like a fitting tribute to listen to her albums while I worked on the illustration. 

I’m not sure whether listening to the artist while drawing them actually does help me to get a likeness but I like to think it does. The downside is that I still have ‘You Know That I’m No Good’ playing on repeat in my head, so I had better get on and draw someone new…
