Hazel Manuel is a beautiful model. Oil on canvas (46cm x 36 cm) Unframed. I am not convinced by this pose or setting, it’s a reference she sent me. I would prefer something more subtle and suited to her natural appearance; less posed, especially the hair. But it doesn’t diminish from her qualities as an extraordinary model. I would now want to paint her, not just in a more natural setting, but after several paintings in monotone, now to paint her in true tones and colours.
