Heloise Toop - Cambridge Portrait Painter
Bry as Something Strange
Oil on Linen
24" x 36"


My sister is strange. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure to meet her would agree. Strange, but in the most wonderful way. Bry has an array of weird and wonderful outfits deep within the mountains of clothes on her bedroom floor. From dinosaur onesies to frothy pink tutus, top hats with ribbons to a rainbow of wigs, we have grown accustomed to her entering the kitchen each morning as anything other than Bryony.

Recently she's been experimenting with face paint and occasionally wanders around dressed as a troll from her favourite online comic.I thought this look was worthy of a painting and got her to pose for me. It would be fair to say that she is my muse. A fantastic, forever changing one! Next time Bry, ....a dinosaur.
