Beth Powlesland 2

2016

Oil on panel

18cm x 23cm

This little painting came out of the blue as Beth experimented with balancing on a wooden support I have in the studio. I’m intrigued by the extreme foreshortening created by the angle and extraordinary nature of the pose – which was very challenging to hold – and that elements of the picture have the feel of a portrait, despite the subject’s face not being visible.
