Ellie, oil paint

I created Ellie during a figure painting course I took in Florence, Italy. Our final project was completely open-ended, granting me the freedom to choose my own subject and content. I decided to paint my model (who is also my girlfriend) in a reclining position mimicking that of Manet's Olympia. I wanted my piece to have evident historical references while also giving it a modern and queer twist.
