Teddy can we hide here

IMG_2689.JPG I think she’s finished. I will live with her for a bit to decide if there is anything I want to do with her.

When I originally envisioned this image she was s curly blond, happy and getting her teddy out of a well stocked play room. The details originally were a lot finer and polished.

I have become increasingly aware of the needs of neglected children and what was once an image full of hope has become something much deeper and emotional. The strokes have become looser and an outlet for the feelings I have the image has become darker and whilst I haven’t pushed it as dark in context as I could have done, this is the image I needed to paint.
