Toyah: Snow Covers The Kiss

Watercolour, 2014.
So I'm a big Toyah fan and have been for nearly 35 years. I've painted her several times over the last few years. Back in 1985 she released a song called "Snow Covers The Kiss". It was relegated to a B-side of the single "Don't Fall In Love (I Said)" but for me it was equally as good. So this image came about from imagining if "Snow" had been the single and needed a cover image. Toyah's look at the time was much more glamorous and sophisticated than previously, so I've tried to keep that theme.
