"This is a portrait of my mother, painted in oils on canvas. The painting captures her deep in thought, with a very familiar natural expression. The painting doesn't seek to flatter, but instead aims to create an honest portrayal of the subject, communicating depth of expression. I have used a limited palette and a strong light source to bring out the various contours, shapes, reflections and shadows across the face. Detail is focused on the face, providing contrast with the simplified block colours of the clothing and background."
