This painting is adapted from two photos by Peter Pedonomou. I've tried to create an elegant, airy composition whilst making the best of the light and detailing. The challenge was the abundance of competing whites, broken up only occasionally by stronger tones from the wood and her hair. This provided some rather tricky issues with contrast. I find this kind of painting challenge easier to deal with in the poor natural light of the winter, when colours are muted and tones stand out better to my eyes. 

This large figurative painting took just over 25 hours to complete and will hopefully be one of a short series of similar work in the coming weeks and months - while the poor winter light dominates.  

23.5" x 31.5" (with 1.5" painted sides)
