Rachel is one of the artist’s favorite models. In the picture, which is called “Rachel”, the artist-photo-realist Will Cotton adorned the head of his model with freakish seashells and bright ribbons, which, as a rule, decorate cakes and pastries in confectioneries. A white cream emphasizes the delicate apricot skin of a girl.
The picture is sustained in warm tones from a light creamy pink to a dense peach. In the bright blue, Rachel’s eyes seem to reflect the clear sky. The face is lively and expressive, written in rich colors. From the portrait of the girl and breathes youth, the hot sun, the aroma of ripening fruit and the sweetness of vanilla.
