The actress in the past few days has also revealed to fans and followers that she has been working on several paintings while in quarantine. For one, she shared “this week’s work in progress” just yesterday, May 26.
Evangelista can also be seen working on a painting over a wider canvas, as seen on her Instagram page on May 23.
“We’ve been getting really beautiful sunsets lately…maybe that’s why I’ve been using so much golden tones in my artwork,” she said.
