Emma Olympia


We now have a second model called Emma, and a little while ago my drawing pal, Una Sealy, set her in the pose of Manet's Olympia. I was lucky to be right in front of the model and so got the perfect view.
I rarely return to work on life paintings but I think I may add a little choker and a few other references to the Manet picture.

Such a beautiful painting just as it is, I assume its in oils? Wonderful...
I've been popping by for a while but a bit shy about commenting! I very much enjoyed watching your youtube of painting the Dragon from the Bee Man of Orm... a book I shall have to grab at some point no doubt!
