It is not simple to immortalize a character in a painting.
Capturing the expression, the posture and the attitude is a hard task. Magaly succeeded with Monique. The distant glance and the proportions of the figure seem to work. The brushstrokes are harmonious.
Note the glass effect of the table and the couch at the bottom of the room, they seem to be real.
The lines on the right side give the painting a modern touch.
