I wanted to do a painting that pays respect to Leonardo da Vinci, Frida Kahlo, and Fernando Vicente, integrating their various artistic styles. The bone tattoo makes reference to Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical drawings and the combination of beauty and anatomy from Fernando Vicente. I photographed my model, Scarlet, in her own choice of clothes and accessories to reflect her personality - a confident young woman, like Frida Kahlo.
