I was lucky enough to receive a commission to paint Helen and combine two great passions. French character and life drawing.
In my previous work I highlighted the characteristics particular to Parisian restaurant facades, the nudes of Helen however capture my interest in exploring the inner ambience and essence that she worked in.
The sumptuous oil colours I chose reflect the similarly rich wine, food and French indulgence of the particular aristocratic restaurant Helen worked in, Madame Sousou’s.
Thank you Theo Tsapepas.
