Went home for lunch and whipped out a couple more brujas, adding them to the page I started three days ago:
Yes, that's Manet's Olympia (1863) at the top. Or, at least, it's poached from Manet. Interesting realization with echoes from yesterday's point about projecting from photos. The right eye on Olympia (her left eye) is way larger, and out of line with human anatomy, but it doesn't matter because the rest is so spectacular. Says a lot about copying and letting it rip.
"When you have a choice, let it rip."
