Original artwork description:

I wanted to paint a portrait of a child who has grown up in Kashmir during the recent unrest in the area. In 2019 the Indian Government revoked Article 370 which meant that Kashmir would lose its own constitution and would be ruled by India. This was a hugely controversial issue and caused widespread unrest. The Indian Government then imposed a media blackout which meant that all social media was banned and in effect the country was gagged.
I wanted the emotion and trauma of these events to be seen through the eyes of the child and I used the symbols of soldiers and a blindfolded and gagged face to emphasise this constant road of trauma that the people of Kashmir have to endure.

I wanted to paint "A Child Of Kashmir" in a realism style using oil paints on canvas.
I primed the canvas in red paint and started building the layers of the oil painting initially using large brushes and gradually decreasing the size of the brushes until I used single hair brushes for the smallest of detail.

ORIGINAL ART BY James Earley- "A Child Of Kashmir" is an original oil painting. Only the highest quality archival fine art grade oil paints are used (Michael Harding Oil Paints).
The painting will come with a signed Certificate Of Authenticity.
