Painting of an Afghan Girl
Oil on Linen Canvas, 2015
Painting Tabitha was very emotional as I get very attached to my work and go through a lot of emotions during the painting process. Tabitha is a girl from Afghanistan. I chose the name Tabitha, which is an Aramaic name, because she has the beautiful eyes of a gazelle.
I used the old masters’ grisaille technique for this painting as it seemed like the best way to represent the true colors and the light that reflects of her skin.
