Description of Portrait I

2015: Portrait of a Girl – Blossoming – my first ever human portrait in oils and what proved to be an exquisite introduction to the genre in terms of the painting experience. The somewhat abstract blossom is a deliberate foil to all the detailed attention given to the skin tone and facial features of the youthful subject; also a symbolic reference to a time of life that is brimful of freshness, optimism and burgeoning potential.
