Artist's description:

Thank you for looking at my artwork and taking the time to read the description. I'm delighted this painting has caught your eye!

"At The Window" is based on a quick figure sketch I drew of the beautiful life model Yuka during a Friday evening session at Hesketh Hubbard Life Drawing Society. It was my last session with Yuka before she moved back to Japan. While I was drawing her, I felt a strong sense of longing although I do not know where it came from - did it originate from the model longing to go home and see her family again or to stay in Europe and experience more of the world? Was it my own longing for more time with this wonderful muse or for the ability to capture her better?

Either way, when I went about putting the drawing on canvas I immediately felt compelled to place the figure at a window looking out into the world, the universe, the future. I believe we are all connected to each other and this painting not only makes me feel closer to the gorgeous, happy Yuka but also to everyone who, like me knows the feeling of longing.

To create this painting I used top grade artist's acrylics by the American company Golden and the German brand Schminke. The piece is protected with UV filtering varnish and comes ready to hang with D-rings and wire across the back. The painting can be hung as is, because the pattern continues around all sides. However if you wish to add a frame to this artwork, I would recommend a light to medium grey tray frame. I make these frames by hand myself, so please get in touch to discuss.
