You have placed a thrill in my art; Annie's girl reveals the naked truth.

Byline: Toby McDonald

Annie Lennox's model daughter Tali has fallen in love with doing nude paintings of women.

The up-and-coming artist, who criticised Madonna for posing topless at 56, says she is fascinated by the female form.

Tali, who specialises in semiclothed self-portraits, said breasts can be the hardest part of the body to capture on canvas.

The 24-year-old made her film debut in black comedy Deadman's Barstool last year and has recently moved to Los Angeles.

She has been taking acting lessons but says painting is her passion.

Tali said in a US interview: "I've been curious about what it is to be a woman capturing other women. I want to gently challenge the viewer's own awareness of sexuality.

"I love to paint nudes, skin, boobs. It interests me to figure out how my perspective differs from that of a man's, which can come from such an objectified angle.

Tali, who stars in lingerie brand Agent Provocateur's latest campaign, is the youngest daughter of Eurythmics singer Annie, who had a string of hits in the 80s including You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart.

Tali's sister Lola, who has also modelled, dropped out of college to write and perform music.
