I found, by accident , an old issue of French ELLE dating back to 1989 and i was struck by the beauty of this Model.
Being a Painter and a Fashion Photographer myself, i know the names of hundreds of models "except this one", so i decided to call her ELLE France.
In the original picture , the girl is wearing a brown scarf and the background is blue grey so i decided to push the colors according to my own palette.
This painting belongs to my own personal collection.Oil on canvas 50x60 cm.
This is another Oil Painting of Elise my cousin ( who was my model for many years )...
In the first painting i opted for Yellow Ochre and Burnt Sienna along with red and black while in this second painting i wanted to change the color palette and add a touch of light Magenta and green in the background...
Hope you like those two paintings !!!!!!!!!
