Espejito is Spanish for ‘little mirror’.
This painting was a studio work in oil made from a series of photographs and sketches I had done with a model called Lauren.
The idea was a young woman putting the finishing touches to her make up before heading out for a summer evening on the town.
The main light is coming from a window behind her and I was intrigued my the play of light on her skin, hair and dress.
