The original cover photograph of Joni Mitchell from her 8th album – Hejira (released in Nov. 1976) is black & white. I tried to select some vivid colors and contrasts to paint her portrait in color. I was requested from a friend to paint Joni and completed this watercolor in early May 2020. I believe the burgundy sweater and brilliant blue beret provide a colorful combination that accentuates her wonderful facial complexion and hair. This painting area is 9" x 12" with a 1" white border.
