two girls products
This composition was influenced by the Kwong Sang Hong Two Girls logo, a Hong Kong commercial icon.
My favorite product is their Florida Water, made with Bergamot, Clove and Lavender. It's a refreshing unisex scent, great for sprinkling onto cool summer towels. The website even claims it can "help dispel effects of alcoholic hangover."
The original models for the painting may have been men, according to their website, and these transsexual calendar girls were painted with the "scraping brush" technique.
Artists would first coat the paper with carbon, to give it softness and depth; I do something similar when I give mine a thinned-out wash of color before painting.
