Little Lilliput

Painting & Drawing

Acrylic, 760 x 1020mm
Painted from studies at the sitters house and from reference photographs.

Along with my Self Portrait painting, this painting was chosen for the The Bentlif Trust exhibition March 2015 at the Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery, Kent.

This is a painting of one of my close friends Liz Garcia whose nickname is Little Lilliput as she is very slight. She has accumulated a large collection of retro and vintage objects and ornaments. I wanted to capture her sitting amongst some of her possessions as though she herself were one of the pieces. The red jumpsuit she is wearing is one from her vintage clothing collection.
