When I painted this painting it was about the attitude I got from the model.
Here in this painting I used an old castle wall (Cadiz, Spain) and path way to inspire a painting with two women, one more open to the times and the other more conservative. I wanted to show a conflict in dress but not a conflict in the women. I used the same model for the two figures.
This painting was also inspired in Spain as well. I was in Cordoba and I saw a very nice foyer at a hostal. The idea was to have a woman coming out of the hostal, and kind of showing herself off in a quite way.
I photographed this model while I was in Ayllon, Spain. I had looked over the landscape first and decided to have the model pose at this site. The landscape had wheat fields and rolling hills. The sun was setting and the light was warm. The models expression had a far away look and I thought this was perfect for the painting that I wanted.
