The Spirit of St. Vincent

Working on a new piece based on the soothing voice of singer/songwriter/musician Annie Clark. I was listening to her first album and was thinking to myself "This stuff could calm a sea faster than Poseidon." and so here we have the sketch. Which is her standing amidst a stormy ocean trying to calm the ocean with song. Below are my first set of color studies, its been awhile since I've done them digitally. This reminded me of how awesome photoshop is for finalizing images.

You can find her tunes here if Interested. I'm excited to start this painting. :)
