The painting is inspired by the nineteenth century French artist Camille Corot. It depicts fellow artist Elizaveta playing cards. The spontaneity of the moment, concentration of the card player and nineteenth century interior of the apartment, taken together reminded me of Corot’s works and inspired me to paint. I worked on paper, since lockdown had denied my access to canvas. The red and white colours of the chair predominate serving to frame the sitter.
