Velvet Village – Inspiration for Boudoir

Velvet village inspiration


This photograph of Stephanie Rose taken by my daughter for The Velvet Village was my inspiration for ‘Boudoir’. I loved the pose, composition and colour, what makes a good photograph doesn’t necessarily make a good painting, something we don’t always know until we start. With ‘Boudoir’, use of colour, angles, & background needed to be changed for what I hoped to achieve, & what proved to be a successful painting. Thank you Stephanie Rose.
