Washington: Emma Watson has revealed that she had a low-key experience of doing her own make-up and choosing her own clothes when she posed for a series of paintings.
The ‘Harry Potter’ actress worked with artist Mark Demsteader on the new exhibition, which will benefit the African charity CAMFED, and she admitted being on such a low-key set, which didn’t have a team of stylists and make-up professionals, was a strange experience.
“As it takes Mark several months to create the pieces, he finds it easier to work from photographs so I met him and a photographer for a day’s photo shoot in north London back in January,” Contactmusic quoted Watson as telling UK Vogue.
“It was a really simple shoot with just a single light to cast shadows. We took lots of pictures in a variety of poses and Mark went away and selected 30 or so to turn into paintings.
“Whilst I didn’t sit for Mark as such, it was a completely different photo shoot to anything I’ve ever done before. It was really low-key - I did my own makeup and just brought a selection of very simple dresses for the silhouette. Mark did the lighting,” she revealed.
