This original painting is inspired by a young girl I worked with in India many years ago. She was a quiet, introverted girl often to be found on the fringes of a group. This painting is based on one particular moment where I was struck by her innocence, beauty and isolation. My paintings of the children I have worked with in India have special significance to me and I enjoy harnessing portraiture to honour and celebrate small, mundane and unnoticed moments of beauty - making the moments larger than life and demanding attention be paid.
The painting is oil on premium quality canvas and is ready to hang.
