When I look on the internet for images of a pretty girl I encounter images of Emily Didonato. She is amazing and so natural. I downloaded several images of her without knowing it was her. In this painting she has wet hair and I think the original image is from some kind of commercial. I have painted Emily in a more spontaneous style and it took me while to let myself go at this.

Fashion models have always inspired me. I want the portraits I create to be intense and communicative and I hope the viewer is touched by it. Colors are important and I always try to push the boundaries and play with them in such away that the color palette is bold but in harmony.
