Illustration | The Luxe Bohemian Inspired by Loulou de la Falaise and Rene Gruau


Gouche painting of Loulou de la Falaise lounging in her bed in Paris apartment
Pencil, gouache and gold marker.
Here's a new painting I've been working on since I've been stuck at home sick dealing with my thyroid problem (still). It's based on a photo of the fabulous Loulou de la Falaise lounging in her decadent Parisian apartment.

It's a small piece painted on a scrap of recycled cardboard with gouache and pencil. It's much tighter than my usually style and I've outlined most of the figure and objects with a black gouache line inspired by René Gruau.

Hope you like it!
