About this artwork

This painting was executed using a limited greyscale oil color palette. The artist loves to use this approach when, first by rubbing the surface of the canvas with the oils and then working up the image from there. She feels the process lends itself well from her source material of vintage, historic portrait photographs. This painting depicts Penelope, a young girl from the Edwardian era, with her loose golden ponytails tied with black velvet ribbon.
