notorious by EmmaMount notorious by EmmaMount
20x30" oil on canvas
my tribute to Hitchcock's sophisticated ice cool blondes
i guess she's a combination of Grace Kelly, Tippi Hedren, Janet Leigh, Eva Marie Saint etc
complex, always beautiful, flawed, iconic and bewitching

i randomly picked a handbag from a fashion mag to use as reference to paint this one, and later found out it was the Alexander McQueen 'Novak' bag - spooky!
