The two girls posing are posing as if they are waiting for someone, possibly for Alice Neel to finish the painting. Visually, their clothes are the only points of contrast between the complete image with the small white that pops out along with the grey dress. The only reason why the two in the image actually pop out from the background is because of the way the artists uses the paintbrush stroke and the direction it goes
