Portrait painting purple hair. Woman with a turtleneck and gold chain. Contemporary art portrait by Heather Buchanan.

This painting was a bit of a breakthrough for me. I'd never really played with colour and flatness in portraiture like this before. Her stunned expression, her eyeballs that deviate from the viewer's gaze in opposite directions, all these things I've been exploring lately started with Helen.

And also I LOVE her turtleneck/chain combo and copy it often.


11"x14" and printed on beautiful heavyweight Matte Epson paper using archival pigment-based inks. That means it's a high quality art print that will not fade over the years.
