Splendid Helene Fairy

This pop portrait was inspired by going with friends this summer to the Freo Lane-way music festival and creating little drawings of different musicians. This painting was from a drawing of the fab lead singer Ingrid Helene Havik of Norwegian indie-pop band Highasakite. The way her thick plaits of purple & blue glimmered and framed her face paired with her sparkly loose shorts and lacey siren vocals with both pretty and dark lyrics was a sensory paradise for my little old self.
