Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

With every new portrait I discover something new in myself as an artist, something new in my subject, something new in the materials I use. These daily discovery's not only help me grow my craft, but help me grow as a person.

In painting this model I found I was drawn to lighter pastel colours, yet there was a darker side to this young lady, hidden depths she was keeping under wraps. Although I never pushed the question with her I couldn't help but show these hidden emotions in my brush strokes.

Oil on canvas 76x100cm
UV varnished to help protect against sunlight and everyday dirt and dust.
