Artist's description:

This is a painted portrait of a Florentine girl. It was painted directly from the model utilising a method of painting called sight size. I was drawn to paint the model's dignified but slightly enigmatic face.
I used a classical colour palette for the painting, but decided to paint in a direct, unblended style, ensuring an active painterly rendering of the forms.
A portrait from life is always an exercise in capturing the essence of the sitter and the moment in time where an artist and the model collaborate to create a work of art.
