Image size 19 x 14 cm, frame size 24 x 18.5 cm.
Painted from a photograph in a medical textbook about a person with a wine-coloured birthmark. It came to be more about the properties of paint than any kind of literal portrait. The joy that she takes in the manipulation of the medium is evident in the layers of brushstrokes and differing applications of the paint to the surface.
