Photographer Crush Richard Avedon

Well, I think I will be doing a series of post about photographers I admire o recently discovered.  Today the turn goes to Richard Avedon.  Richard was a portrait and fashion photographer, and worked for magazines including Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.  His black and white photos are dramatic and theatrical, I love his style.  I made a painting inspire by a photograph he made of Marella Agnelli.  I'm not a portrait painter, but lately, I'm taking the challenge of painting things I no normally paint, is part of the creative process of an artist, and I like to challenge myself too.
