About the painting
The whole painting was somewhat invented, including the girl painted by combining Marcia Gay Harden who plays Roger’s (C. Walken) wife, with LA model Toni Czechorosky.\nIn the movie you can see some extreme close ups of the painting. Because the painting was supposed to be painted by fictitious painter (Marcel de Robert) belonging to a fictitious late 19th century painting movement (Post French Naturalist) I wanted the paint to be thicker and look more layered than my own paintings and look a little more like the Naturalist painters. I had a limited amount of time to complete the piece so I used Galkyd Lite medium to minimize the drying time. See my older post where I talk a little more about creating the painting for the movie.
