the kiss

this is a theme that every artist I have ever loved has painted! This is my second attempt from the same photo reference, a smirnoff ad in playboy magazine november 1980. ooh! that's some good vodka right? is Smirnoff still advertising in playboy? ahahhaha! yeah no. I cropped in on the original photo which shows the entire length of the female model; I like this closer focus. I went full fauve here! put your goggles on, the paint is flying.
