This is an original oil painting on ragboard. The subject is a female portrait. The palette is fairly simple - Anglo skin tones, dark browns, green background, with white and red highlights.
The subject is a young, woman. She is shown bust-high and close-up, filling most of the picture plane. Her features are fine and 'thin'. She wears a ruffled white shirt under a vest and jacket with a bright red scarf hung round her neck. She has short, dark auburn hair and wears a large, dark brown, wide-brimmed hat. Her head is tilted to her right and turned slightly. Her dark blue eyes peer directly at the viewer. The work succeeds in creating a very intimate dialogue with the model.
The work is in pristine condition and signed by the artist. It is double matted and framed under plexiglass as shown.
