Corona Solis (tango & uniform)

Corona Solis (tango)
15" x 11", watercolour, 2000 private collection

I used photo ref of Alyson Hannigan from a magazine for these two paintings. This was at a time when I was photographing my own models for my paintings, so why are so many magazine models are turning up in the Sunflowers series? Most likely building my illustration portfolio with a few more recognizable faces to demonstrate I can do likenesses fairly well.

Anyway, in this photo shoot, she's actually goofing around with an action figure of herself as her character, Willow Rosenberg, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I replaced the doll with a sunflower. Ha-ha.
