Artist's Description

(This one is for you, Patricia.)

Here’s a very early work that saw three manifestations, this being the third and finished version…The first two were in near finished states when first one daughter, aged three, got into the room I was then using as a work space and tipped a bottle of ink over the half completed drawing…the second version saw my two year old daughter figure out the locking mechanism I’d put on the door and finding the pretty picture without colour, she coloured it in for me…Using stipple as my technique for tonal work at this time, meant that this picture at 20 X 30 cms, took me about two and a half to three months to complete; not counting the two previous attempts. (The style of woman’s face I used was very much influenced by Norman Lindsay’s approach to his womens faces…I no longer use it as I have found my own voice.)
