Flowers

22" x 15", watercolour, 2002, private collection

Here's Ashley again wearing that blue tube top that I've painted her in a few other times: Tangle (which also has a bit of an art nouveau theme), AW-020 (which contains a detail of the velvety texture), Coke Addiction 3, and Ashley Reading.

This painting is a slightly different pose that I used in AW-026, but isn't the one used for the abandoned oil painting "companion" I mentioned in that post.

The flowers to the left are stolen from a drawing by my favourite art nouveau artist, Alphonse Mucha, to which I've added colour for this painting, but I made up the background circle borrowing heavily from his motifs.
