The Mystery of Appearance: Lucian Freud

What I like about this one is her big bottom for her frame and the heaviness of the limbs. I wish I knew how to paint like that.

What I don’t know if I like is the odd perspective of the sofa. I don’t know if that brings anything more interesting to the image. Here she looks like she could be a miniature person on a gigantic sofa, but I didn’t get that sense from the painting when I was there, maybe it’s just the photo of the painting that seems like that.

In any case I quite like the reflection of the lady on the left in this one!
