The model is Cecilia Green, originally titled, 'Olearia'


Here we have Cecilia once again modelling as the subject in a pastel flowing skirt. Here we have a much greater use of vibrant colours ranging from the dark navies at the base to the creams and whites of the centre piece.

Originally the piece had been titled Olearia, however on publication the name had been changed to the now known Model for Elegance.

This is another fine example of Sir Russell Flints watercolour work showing, not only high attention to shading but the use of negative space as part of his gradients as represented in the skirt.
