Girl in Yellow
  -    -  Girl in Yellow

Oil on Canvas 28cmx35cm


I’m using the last of my French paint, the stuff at that has carcinogenic warnings on the labels, and the most amazing depth of colour. Particularly the yellow, which I used for the girls dress, the only colour in an otherwise ‘bland’ painting of Stone Town.

To ensure I didn’t end up with another ‘engineers’ door, I kept the detail of the arch to a minimum, a hint of texture and tone.

For the face of the girl, the light has to be from the correct angle to bring it to life. Not by design, but still impressive.
