Another portrait painting of public figures I made for study and practice. This one is a painting of Angelina Jolie.
The photo reference I took from browsing the web and finally found one that interests me to paint to. Photo of Angelina Jolie wearing hijab.
I found she looks so elegant even when she’s wearing ‘hijab’ ..yeah! I am a fan of her if you ask me.
Please take note, that there is no purpose of provocation or something in this painting.
The story behind the Angelina Jolie painting
The photo reference source is from Pinterest which is from http://78.media.tumblr.com/ where the photo is pined from.
Because of I still curious, again I googling to find out where is exactly the photo taken from, and finally, I found a post from a blog that explains it.
The photo was shot during the visit of Mrs. Angelina in Pakistan for helping peoples who forced to leave their homes due to flood disasters. You can check the blog here http://isloootalkingpoint.blogspot.com/
That’s why I really admire her …
Anyway! I hope painting a portrait from the internet is ‘legal’
So! the original photo credit goes to the photographer, thanks!
