Girl with Headband and Pink Breast by Peter Searle ( the Elder )

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Mixed media on Canson paper 30 cm x 65 cm. Done with a variety of brushes and my fingers. I’m not sure if my darks are too dark. The painting appears better in some lights, but overall I was pleased with the effect. Thanks for having a look.

    Absolutely LOVE this, the contrast between the very feminine pink and the dark browns and blacks is fantastic. I love the rush of brushstrokes and the softer (finger painting?) parts too.

  • Thank you Alexandra. It was painted in a bit of a frenzy.

    For sure this beautful being has more than one eye. At least three of them look inside me and ask those deep questions. A touching work Peter

    That’s definitely praise indeed coming from you Bernard as your works inspire me, and I’d like to think that we are alike in some ways

    I’ve enjoyed sitting with this for a while. Eventually it emerges, more and more. It is like a song, a vibration. The eyes adjust anyway, and tunes in.
