Watercolour on Waterford 356gsm painted with W/N watercolour paints.
The photo of this painting belongs to wonderful photographer John Spies.
This little Black Lahu girl caught my eye when I was paging through Johns’ work. It was the wonderfully powerful eye’s that drew me to paint her as well as John’s narrative regarding the story of these people. The light was also so wonderful.
I would like to thank John for allowing me to paint her and hope I did it justice!
