This is a portrait painted from memory.
It was in a bar in London, she worked there.. It was crowded and noisy, and all the while I was there I couldn't take my eyes off her. She was unreal, like straight out of my imagination. She talked, and looked just like the girls I dream up inside my head.. The ones I draw all the time.
I felt like a creepy stalker but I seriously couldn't stop thinking about her all night, and I still regret not daring to talk to her.
It was back in November 2009 and I probably won't see her ever again, but this morning I decided to draw her, straight out of my memory.
