Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher
18" x 14", oil on canvas, 2020

When I embarked on this new project to record myself painting pictures then upload time lapse videos to my YouTube channel, I began my usual practice of rummaging through my sketchbooks and photo reference for material. I kept coming across pictures of Carrie Fisher and, although I've painted her as part of a group in Visible, Audible Heat, and did a stylized painting of The Princess (for which I used a friend), I thought it'd be fun to paint a picture of what's in my mind's eye when I think of "Princess Leia," that is, Carrie Fisher in her white outfit with these braids she wore in The Empire Strikes Back.

Below is the time lapse video of this painting's creation:
