Lady Lila Stern of Los Angeles was gifted a copy of my Venus in Furs a few months back and instantly desired to be portrayed as Wanda herself. So this portrait is in very much the style of the ten watercolour illustrations in that book. The same watercolour technique, the same sensual atmosphere, the boots, the whip and of course, the furs…a huge fur coat. The commissioner of the portrait holds the wine before her -as her Severin.

Please remember if you are commissioning for a birthday to leave a few months as there is usually a waiting list for commissioned artwork.
