Lady Killer

Lady Killer

I recently watched The Quick and the Dead for the second time… I watched it when it first came out on DVD, back in 1995. I loved it then, and was not disappointed this time, either. Sharon Stone plays the awesome ‘Lady’, come to avenge her fathers murder, and avenge she does. I decided I had to paint ‘Lady’, and took several screen captures. This painting is of one of them… not the one I’m going to use, but I really liked her expression, and the general, ass-kicking feel of the whole image, so I did this as a kind of quick (couple of hours), inspirational warmup for the fabulous portrait I’m going to paint next. This painting, and the next one I’m going to do, are from the final moments in the film, where ‘Lady’ exacts her revenge in superb, against-the-odds style. Very much my kind of girl (:
