The model, Amanda, co-operated wonderfully during the prolonged execution of this complex painting. The triptych is hinged enabling the two outer portions to fold over and cover the centrepiece; the closed doors are decorated with a reclining figure (Shan) in pastel (see here).
See Individual panels for details: Left, Right, and Central. An important work (to me at least) exploring the transformation of the female form through clothes and make-up. The dichotomy of the triptych(!) also confuses 'dressed up' with a mundane chore. An area I want to explore further, however it's important, as ever, to see that handling of paint is not subservient to subjective reality.
