Portrait of a Young Girl

The reference for this portrait came from the town of Sulmona in Italy; a little girl waiting for the beginning of a parade that, in the end, was canceled because of rain. The flat shapes in the painting contrast with the modelling of her face and the figure’s position on the canvas - turning to her right- creates tension and leaves the viewer wondering what is happening that affects her so.
